The grounding of the UK Royal Navy's nuclear-powered submarine, 'HMS Astute' off the west coast of Scotland two years ago, was due to a catalogue of errors, an official report has claimed.
The submarine was stranded for 10 hours during a boat-to-boat personnel transfer as part its first set of sea trials off the Isle of Skye on 22 October 2010.
