Warhead convoy stopped
Early on 11 July, a military convoy carrying nuclear warheads was stopped for one hour near Loch Lomond by protesters from Faslane Peace Camp. One person climbed on top of a nuclear transporter; four were arrested.
The 20-vehicle convoy, with four special transporter lorries to carry 100-kiloton nuclear warheads, had driven through the centre of Glasgow shortly after midnight.
The convoy, from AWE Burghfield to the Coulport nuclear store, was tracked by Nukewatch and Scottish CND.
