There were delays on the roads on Thursday when a convoy of 20 military vehicles travelled through the county.

Setting off from the Atomic Weapons Establishment in Burghfield near Reading at 9am, the convoy included four warhead carriers which transport Trident nuclear bombs.

It arrived at the Coulport nuclear store in Scotland at 2.30am yesterday.

The journey through Oxfordshire was filmed by members of the Oxford Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).

Spokesman Nigel Day said: “The Ministry of Defence sent this massive convoy of weapons of mass destruction on our roads and through our cities.”
