UK Special Forces inspecting LNG carriers for mines

Divers working for the UK Special Boat Service (SBS) and Royal Navy specialists are inspecting LNG carriers bound for the UK to ensure that they do not have limpet mines attached beneath the waterline, claimed this week’s Mail On Sunday. The strongest focus was on vessels bound from Qatar to either the Isle of Grain in the Thames Estuary or Milford Haven at the entry to the Bristol Channel.
