Britain deploys nuclear submarine under Arctic amid rising tensions with Russia

BRITAIN has deployed its nuclear submarine under the Arctic for the first time in a decade amid the growing tensions with Russia.

According to The Telegraph, HMS Trenchant has joined two American vessels for an exercise that will include improving war-fighting capabilities in extreme cold water.

The move comes as Theresa May’s expelled 23 Russian diplomats as part of a response to the alleged Russian-ordered poisoning of a former Russian Spy and his daughter.

HMS Trenchant broke through a metre of ice in the Arctic in a show of military strength.

The Royal Navy submarine is taking part in Ice Exercise 18, a major operation in conjunction with US forces.

It is the first time in a decade a Navy submarine has practised beneath the ice amid increasing tensions with Russia.

The submarine carries Tomahawk cruise missiles and Spearfish heavyweight torpedoes and is powered by a Rolls Royce nuclear reactor.
