- Concern after Nimrod 'teapot fix'
New claims about the safety of Nimrod aircraft based at RAF Kinloss are to be raised in the House of Commons.
It has emerged that the crew of a Nimrod used a teapot to block a hatch gap in their plane after a mid-air mechanical fault.
A Ministry of Defence (MoD) spokeswoman said safety had not been compromised.
The spokeswoman said: "There was a minor malfunction with the hatch cover and the teapot would have been used to make it more comfortable for the crew.
Thanks to darky for pointing this one out.
