Aunty is not only a little late (http://www.navy-net.co.uk/submarine...l-underwater-tests-mark-ambush-milestone.html) but she has ignored/distorted the builder's press release regarding the actual location of this key event. :roll:

Beeb says <<...off the coast of Cumbria...>>

BAE says <<...in a dedicated deep area of the dock at Barrow-in-Furness known as the ‘basin’ or ‘dive hole’...>>

Ambush Takes The Plunge - BAE Systems



(Mind you the Barrovians are still smarting from being moved from Lancashire to Cumbria a few years back.)

Hope the "lessons identified" by Astute (i.e. check depth of water you're in) have become "lessons learned" before Ambush opens her valves or whatever they do.
