Rolls Royce will provide support and advice for systems on board the current fleet of Trafalgar, Vanguard and Astute class submarines until 2022, the defence ministry said.

The contract would support around 500 jobs in the United Kingdom, it said.

"This year, we mark half a century since British nuclear-armed submarines began their continuous patrol of waters around the world," Gavin Williamson, the defence minister said.

"This significant milestone for the Royal Navy would not be possible without the skills and ingenuity of our industry partners who supply and maintain equipment.
