A flyer and a female cadet had a sex romp in the back
Britain's Royal Navy is probing claims that a flyer and a female cadet had a sex romp in the back of a Lynx helicopter while aboard a warship.
"An incident was reported. An investigation has been launched by naval authorities," a spokesman said. "It was aboard HMS Cumberland which was at sea at the time."
The Sun newspaper said the incident took place in the rear of the helicopter, parked in the frigate's aircraft hangar.
It said the cadet involved had been on a six-week familiarization visit to the frigate during exercises in the English Channel.
The spokesman said instances of such alleged close quarters intimacy at sea were "fairly rare."
