Tugs move in to assist the Royal Navy nuclear submarine HMS Astute, after it ran aground in shallow water off the Isle of Skye, Scotland, Friday Oct. 22, 2010. The Ministry of Defence insisted that the accident was not a nuclear incident, that the submarine remained watertight, and that there is no indication of any environmental problems as a result of the accident. The Astute is biggest and most powerful attack submarine ever built for the Royal Navy, and measures nearly one hundred metres from bow to stern, and is longer than ten London buses. less
