The Hunt for Red October: UK Ministry of Defence forced to ask America for help in search for Russian submarine thought to be lurking off North Atlantic coast

The Ministry of Defence has been forced to ask the U.S for help as it hunts for a suspected Russian submarine believed to be lurking off the coast of Scotland.

Two U.S Navy aircraft were this week drafted in to carry out patrols in the North Atlantic in a bid to bridge the ‘gaping chasm’ in Britain’s anti-submarine capability.
