According to the Daily Mail, traces of cocaine were found in the blood of the nine servicemen of the HMS Vigilant.

In addition, the crewmen are suspected of having organized drug parties while the submarine was docked in the US; one of them is accused of having had sex with a prostitute in a pool.
The Vigilant's two officers – a man and a woman — were also sacked due to an extra-marital affair. In all, about 10 percent of the submarine's complement of 168 left the vessel in connection with the "biggest sex scandal" in the history of the British Navy.
