Tug damaged HMS Astute while freeing it

It has emerged that HMS Astute, the nuclear-powered submarine which ran aground off the Isle of Skye last month, was damaged in a collision with the tug that tried to free it.

The Ministry of Defence says it is still investigating the collision, but confirmed that repairs will have to be carried out on the sub before it resumes its trials.

Ben Ando reports.
