Pretty sure it was Scotland they hit recently in an Astute sub - forgot to turn and drove straight into it. The report didn't stay quiet either!

Given the level of stupidity in the incident it is hard to pick a favourite part but letting the sub drift after finally pulling it free and having an expensive collision with the coastguard 'rescue' tug has to be on the shortlist.
