The substance they used was cocaine, the Daily Mail reported.

The spokesperson also confirmed the navy had launched an investigation into other service personnel on HMS Vigilant over allegations of inappropriate relationships, detailed in British media reports this month.

The scandal around the nuclear-armed submarine HMS Vigilant escalated last night after American police alleged that a crewman visited a prostitute and stole money from her. Claims of another affair between an officer and a junior are already being probed.

With the British nuclear submarine HMS Vigilant was at the center of a sex scandal, was sacked nine submariners.


The Daily Mail also revealed that the submarine's second-in-command, Lieutenant Commander Michael Seal, 36, has been removed over claims of an extra-marital affair with a 27-year-old female engineering officer who has also been taken off the sub.

All of the Royal Navy's fleet have a no-touching rule that prohibits intimate relationships aboard warships.

Crew members of HMS Vigilant are said to tested positive for the class A drug while on duty amid reports of drug-fuelled parties.

The crew members from HMS Vigilant, one of four submarines to carry the nuclear deterrent Trident, were kicked out after failing compulsory drugs tests.
