The British nuclear submarine, H.M.S. Astute, went aground off the northwest coast of Scotland. The newest 8,000 ton sub was conducting sea trials when it ran aground on a sandbank. The sub was freed later that day by a tug and towed back to the naval base west of Glasgow, Scotland. The H.M.S. Astute will be surveyed by divers for any damage.
