"BAE Systems Barrow Submarine Fire Probe Continues"

Seems like something and nothing. Temporary plastic vent trunking is quite common but generate a lot of smoke when you torch them.

Without a full fire report I'd take it as a bit of scaremonger type journalism. Always good news for Journo's having a fire on a nuclear submarine (with or without reactor).

It gives the unknowing a Chernobyl/Windscale wibble...nuclear plus fire in the same headline.

I'm surprised none of the nationals have picked this one up, tbh.

It's what makes me think it's a storm in a teacup plus there's bigger stories at the moment

Doesn't just about every ship/submarine in build have at least 1 fire. Seem to remember there being 2 on the Gloucester in Woolston one of them quite serious but that never made even the pompy rag.
