If you follow the link "See the 7 ships hit by U-407" on our page about U-407 and click on HMS Newfoundland you will reach this page with details about the attack: [uboat.net]

On this page it is mentioned that the damage was earlier credited to ASCIANGHI but newer research showed that the Italian submarine had most likely attacked HMS LAFOREY which then hunted and sank her together with HMS ECLIPSE.
