There has been an extraordinary tragic incident aboard HMS Astute a nuclear-powered submarine while berthed at Southampton, Hampshire, England according to 'The Telegraph'. A Rating shot two fellow crewmembers this morning during a visit by the City Council Leader, City Mayor and City Chief Executive. Tragically one of the crewmembers, who is a Royal Navy Officer, is dead and the other seriously wounded. The Royal Navy has stated that the incident is not terrorist related and there is no Public danger.
The Hampshire Constabulary have arrested the Rating and he is now in their custody, both a Constabulary and Royal Navy Investigations are getting underway. The City 'fathers' are quite safe and by now will have left the vessel.
