    Inside story: the battle to build Britain's new £41bn nuclear submarines

    Construction of the new Dreadnought class of submarines which will provide the UK’s nuclear deterrent got off to a bad start when it began in 2016. The press were transported to BAE Systems’ shipyard at Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria to record what should have been a triumphant moment for British industry as manufacturing began on the £41bn project. Instead it turned into something of a farce. Although then-Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon did get a cheer from workers in the chilly fabrication hall as he pushed the button to ceremonially cut the first steel that would go into the first of the four 17,000-tonne vessels, the moment had been overtaken by events. The story had broken just hours before that the steel plate being sliced up in a shower of sparks had come from France. It was an embarrassing revelation as UK steelmakers were then in the middle of an existential crisis as they buckled under a flood of imports. Perhaps, then, it’s no wonder little has been heard of the Dreadnought programme since.
