For some time there has been speculation about what really happened during this incident during the cold war and now finally it seems like it has been cleared up, but would the security services really have been stupid enough to have attached a mine to a Russian ship whilst it was in Uk waters?

I'm afraid that's where this story falls down.

There no longer appears to be any doubt that Crabb was involved in an espionage mission on the Russian ship which brought Kruschev into Portsmouth but to suggest that an attempt would be made, authorised or not, to plant a mine on that ship is just not credible.

Without some corroboration from elsewhere in the Russian intelligence services this is going to have to be filed under the "how much did the story earn?" tab I think.
