Royal Navy orders investigation after Trident nuclear submarine ‘fixed with superglue’

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

An investigation has been ordered after workers on a Trident submarine seemingly glued broken bolts back together in a nuclear reactor chamber.

According to the The Sun the unsatisfactory repairs to cooling pipes were discovered when a bolt fell off during checks aboard the 16,000-tonne HMS Vanguard.

The paper says that the bolt had originally been sheared off through over-tightening, but instead of reporting the damage and taking the time to bore out the broken shafts, civilian staff at defence contractor Babcock glued the heads back on.
