Twenty workers at the Faslane nuclear submarine base were exposed to radiation due to safety errors, newly-released documents have revealed.

The engineers were repairing a leaking tank on a Trident submarine while a nearby nuclear reactor was operated.

Details of the incident, in August 2012, at the Clyde site emerged after Freedom of Information (FOI) requests by an anti-nuclear group.
