Fire on Ambush

The troubled Astute submarine programme has had another setback, the second of the class Ambush caught fire last night. Workers had to be evacuated from the submarine which is under construction at the BAE Systems yard in Barrow. An investigation has now begun into the cause of the fire which was found to be on the submarine's outer skin and did not cause serious damage. Ambush's reactor is not yet activated. Repairs should just take a week apparently and probably only cost an extra £500 million - OK i made the last bit up.
