A 'NUCLEAR CONVOY' forced drivers to divert this morning as it closed off a slip road onto the A34.

The four-strong convoy, believed to be warhead carriers, was spotted about 9am today travelling through the county having previously left AWE in Burghfield, Berkshire.

It is believed to have made its way from the Atomic Weapons Establishment at 8am and through heavy traffic travelled along the A4, M4 and onto the A34 up to the county.
