Nukewatch spotters

On 10 July, Nukewatch spotted a nuclear warhead convoy heading north on the A34 near Oxford. It was taking nuclear warheads from the Burghfield nuclear bomb factory up to the nuclear bomb store at Coulport in Scotland.

The main convoy was made up of four weapons carriers, each with an armoured personnel carrier escort, a fire engine and MoD police escort vehicles.

Following was a rear support convoy which included a decontamination coach.

The convoy was observed by Nukewatch up to Catterick barracks in Yorkshire, and then, the next day, on into Scotland.
