A nuclear submarine in Devonport dockyard had to be evacuated after a fire broke out while maintenance work was being carried out.

About 55 people had to leave when the fire broke out as welding was being done on the outside of the Trafalgar class submarine, said the Royal Navy.

The "small fire" among protective blankets was put out within five minutes by a fire crew, it said.

The Royal Navy said no-one was injured and an investigation would take place.
