The evacuation of a submarine shipyard in northern England is not related to nuclear safety, Britain's Office for Nuclear Regulation said on Wednesday. Ambulances and police were on the scene in Barrow-in-Furness after a shipyard in northern England that builds Britain's new generation of nuclear submarines was evacuated.

"We have been made aware of an incident at the BAE Systems site in Barrow," a spokesman said. "The incident is not related to nuclear safety. We are liaising with BAE Systems' site security and will continue to monitor the situation."
