It is incorrect to say that the exercise areas of Ardglass and Peel were not activated on 15 April 2015. The SUBFACTS issued to the coastguards in Aberdeen, Belfast and Stornaway on 14 April included both Ardglass and Peel in the areas activated for dived submarine operations in the 24 hour period from 0800 on 15 April 2015.
