Having served in HMS Cornwall quite recently, it doesn't really surprise me to be honest...

An ex-steward on the Navy frigate at the centre of the Iran kidnap drama is to be court-martialled following a fight involving lesbians, Sky News has learned.

The incident involves HMS Cornwall, the ship that saw 15 crew members taken hostage by Iranian forces in March.

Although exact details are still unclear, it is known it took place off the ship in Denmark in 2006.

It led to the unnamed ex-servicewoman being charged with assaulting two other female crew members.

None of those involved is 26-year-old Faye Turney, who was paraded on Iranian TV after being taken hostage on March 23.

However, Lieutenant Felix Carman, another of the former hostages, is set to have a witness statement read out on his behalf during the hearing, which will take place at HMS Nelson in Portsmouth on Tuesday.

Two other crew members will give evidence via video link as the ship is still on active service in the Gulf.

The accused has left the ship, but the Navy can bring courts martial within six months of leaving the service.

The 15 crew members taken captive were released unharmed on April 4 after being made to appear on several times on Iranian television.

Two Words: Non story
This wouldnt have been reported if the sailors hadnt been captured by Iran.

"None of those involved is 26-year-old Faye Turney, who was paraded on Iranian TV after being taken hostage on March 23."
That statement just about sums it up

Non-story indeed.

"Small earthquake in Chile. Not many dead. Faye Turney not involved."

Do noble trees have to die to print this bollix?
