Britain’s nuclear arsenal moves! Multiple warheads spotted being transported on major road

Britain’s nuclear convoy was today seen moving from England to Scotland. The journey is understood to have taken two days, according to NukewatchUK.

The Twitter account reported: “Yet another UK nuclear bomb convoy has made a two-day journey from Aldermaston/Burghfield to Coulport on Loch Long.

“Each truck is probably carrying two warheads.”

A photo shared on social media shows two military-style lorries on the M74 today.

This would put the total number of warheads being transported to four, if NukewatchUK’s estimates are correct.

These are being escorted by a police van.

Another Twitter user, @IndyTom3, said the convey crossed the Kingston bridge on the M8 just before 2pm today.

They added that this is “Scotland’s busiest road bridge running right through the centre of the city”.

They wrote: “These are normal movements.

“The UK being responsible custodians of these weapons takes care to maintain them correctly.

“Even if there was an accident there is no chance one detonating.”

A similar journey was made late last month.

An unmarked military convoy is understood to have moved through Cumbria and Lancashire, heading for Scotland.

Britain has a stockpile of around 225 nuclear warheads, with around 120 of these operationally available for deployment.
