The HMS ARGYLL accidentally fired an unarmed torpedo into the British Devonport Naval Base in Plymouth March 14th. The 9 foot projectile flies out of a launching tube like a missile for an undisclosed distance before entering the water. It hit the shipyard used to service nuclear propelled and armed vessels while in flight. It penetrated a perimeter fence and hit a metal storage container. No one was injured. A Royal Navy investigation is under way. The full story is in The Telegraph
