However, the minister said that in “neither event was any radiological contamination evident”. Figures show an increase in recorded incidents in recent years with 80 in 2016 and 73 last year. An MOD spokesperson said: “None of the events caused harm to the health of any member of staff on the Naval Base, or to any member of the public, and the safety significance has remained very low. The MOD, however, takes all such incidents, no matter how minor, extremely seriously and ensures they are investigated and appropriate measures put in place to prevent a recurrence.”
