Old Submarine Holed Below Waterline

Navy divers have discovered a brick-sized hole in Revenge, one of four old Polaris nuclear submarines stored in Rosyth docks awaiting a land storage solution. While the MoD says it has solved the problem for the time being, this discovery adds urgency to the ISOLUS project to find a land storage site(s) for decommissioned submarines. The clear message is that no new generation of nuclear submarines should be built, since no-one wants the resulting nuclear waste in their backyard.
