The culture of heavy drinking among ratings in the Royal Navy has again come under the spotlight at the inquest into the death of an officer on board a submarine.
Lieutenant Commander Ian Molyneux was shot in the head by a naval rating who went on armed sentry duty on HMS Astute only hours after being drunk on shore leave in Southampton.
He was still well over the drink drive limit. Kerry Swain was at today's hearing.
