A fisherman told last night about the one that got away – a suspected Russian submarine which became entangled in his nets after it strayed inside British waters in the North Sea.
‘Had the submarine headed for deeper waters we might have sunk with it, but I don’t want to dwell on that.
Russian Sub "Caught" By UK Fisherman
Mr. Macleod, 46, added: “At the time we just went through what needed to be done to get out of that situation. We had to keep our propeller clear – that’s our main propulsion. But afterwards we sat down as a crew and we discussed what we’d seen. There is little doubt in our minds that this was caused by a submarine.”
“Between the five of us, we’ve had 110 years fishing experience, and none of us have ever seen anything like it. It was a really uncomfortable position to be in. Afterwards, we realised this was the closest we’d ever come to not coming home at all.”

Love how fingers are being pointed at the Russian fleet!
for all we know this sub (if it was a sub) could just as easily have been one of our own ( uk )
subs or anyone else that operates a submersible for that matter they dont exactly advertise their
locations now do they.
and with the joint exercises ongoing it could be from any NATO navy i doubt we will find out any time soon either.

Wow - if this is true then it could hold big implications.
Russia has been flexing its muscles for a while now. It would not surprise me if they were venturing into foreign waters.
Who knows - maybe all of the issues going on in the middle east and Israel is just to distract us from the real threat of growing Russian forces.
