AWE Burghfield anti-Trident protesters arrested

Police have arrested 21 anti-nuclear weapons protesters who handcuffed themselves together and blockaded the road leading to AWE Burghfield.

Demonstrators at the Atomic Weapons Establishment oppose the renewal or replacement of Trident.

AWE Burghfield and AWE Aldermaston provide the warheads for the submarine-launched missile system.

The activists were arrested on suspicion of obstruction of a public highway and are in police custody.
