HMS Vigilant: Nine sailors sacked after failing drugs tests
Nine sailors from a nuclear missile submarine have been dismissed from the Royal Navy after failing drugs tests, the Ministry of Defence has said. They had been serving aboard HMS Vigilant, which carries the Trident nuclear deterrent. The Daily Mail reported that the drug they had taken was cocaine.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon is understood to have ordered all UK submarine crews to be tested for drugs. He is said to have given First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Philip Jones a "roasting" over the incident. The Royal Navy said it did not tolerate drugs misuse, adding: "Those found to have fallen short of our high standards face being discharged from service."
