British sub cleared of sinking French fishing trawler

Two expert reports published on Friday dismiss a theory that the Royal Navy's HMS Turbulent, or any other submarine, could have got caught up in the trawler's cables and dragged it down. The families of the men who died on board the Bugaled Breizh have long suspected that a submarine was responsible for the unexplained January 15, 2004 sinking off Lizard Point in the English Channel.
