|There was an incident in the sea off Kinlochbervie earlier this week.|
The fishing boat Silver Cloud II (WK80) was trawling for prawns in the Minch off Kinlochbervie when it was ordered to change course to avoid a French submarine.
The submarine is believed to be the FS Saphir - a nuclear attack submarine, and was taking part in the multi-national exercise Joint Warrior 091.
In complying with instructions the Silver Cloud's nets were torn and wrecked. Skipper John McKenzie is reported to be seeking compensation from the MOD.
