Alleged sabotage aboard a new Royal Navy warship at a Scottish shipyard has sparked an inquiry into who was behind the sinister act.
Cables on HMS Glasgow were “damaged intentionally” according to defence contractor BAE systems.
The damage was discovered earlier this week.
A BAE systems spokesperson added: “We immediately launched an internal investigation, alongside our suppliers, and temporarily paused work on the ship to inspect every area of the vessel and ensure our high standards and quality controls are met.
“Normal operations have now resumed and an assessment is under way to scope the repairs needed.”
