Woman smuggled into Trident baseA Marine is facing disciplinary action after smuggling a woman into the home of Britain's Trident submarine fleet in the boot of his car.
It is understood that he was caught with the woman as he escorted her out of the high-security base at Faslane.
Gate security became suspicious when the woman was spotted carrying a Tomahawk cruise missile. She explained that she needed a new focal point for her garden because recent high winds had blown over the birdbath.
It is thought that the woman concerned intended to position the multi-warhead nuclear weapon in an upright position and use it as an attractive conversation piece festooned with hanging baskets and the like.
