A nuclear transport is heading from a factory in Reading for a nuclear bomb store at Coulport - north of Glasgow, and expected to arrive on Monday 12th afternoon. Each of the 3 lorries in the convoy is thought to be carrying two nuclear warheads which, each of them, have a destructive capacity eight times the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.

Civilian weapons inspectors from Scottish CND, Trident Ploughshares and Faslane Peace Camp will be monitoring the convoy as part of the UK Nukewatch network. The civilian weapons inspectors will attempt to stop the convoy for a close-up inspection.
