BUNGLING Ministry of Defence workers have laid bare Britain’s nuclear submarine secrets to our enemies.
A classified government report into the subs’ vulnerabilities has been published online with key parts blacked out to prevent sensitive material getting into the wrong hands.
But a massive blunder has meant anyone with basic computer knowledge could reverse the censorship – and read every word of the previously “restricted” report.
It reveals how easy it would be to cause a Fukushima.

I would hardly call the redacted parts "devastating". Yes, there is some sensitive info there, but it is very technical and addresses mainly Health and Safety practices with regards to operation of the submarines nuclear power plant.
Looks like a risk assessment to me and, to be honest, wouldn't be much use to an enemy. In order to take advantage of the information contained within, they would need to get a chap on board a submarine and be willing to lay down his life in order to jeapordise it, namely by taking advantage of the perceived weaknesses in process and system design.

This has become such the norm of this country and its so called security?
I cannot believe this. This has jeopardised so many sailors lives. Heads should definately roll on this one, but with such an inept, out of his depth PM, nothing will happen.
