UK Nuclear submarine bomb scare
UK’s Barrow military shipyard has been evacuated as police scramble to reports of an explosive.
Staff at a shipyard in northern England that builds Britain’s nuclear submarines have been evacuated after a report of a bomb warning on a nuclear submarine.
“We can confirm there is an ongoing incident at our Barrow site and we are liaising with Cumbria Police who are carrying out an investigation,” a spokeswoman for private arms company BAE Systems said.
“As a precaution the Devonshire Dock complex has been closed. Staff, contractors and local residents are being kept informed.”
Ambulances were on the scene.
An unidentified source told The Mail, a Barrow-in-Furness based publication, that staff had been evacuated after a warning about a bomb on an Astute-class nuclear attack submarine.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
