One of the UK’s newest nuclear-powered submarines has docked in Gibraltar after a collision with a merchant vessel during a training exercise.

The Royal Navy said it has launched an immediate investigation after HMS Ambush was involved in the “glancing collision” while submerged off the coast of the British territory.

There is “some external damage” but no crew members were injured, it added.

The Astute-class attack submarine’s nuclear reactor was undamaged.

In a statement on the Ministry of Defense website, the Navy said the incident took place at approximately on Tuesday (19th July).
