‘Nuclear warheads’ on UK motorways with police escort are ‘very dangerous’ and have sparked fears for Britons’ safety – London Business News
It has been claimed that the Ministry of Defense (MoD) transported nuclear weapons in a convoy on a UK motorway with a police escort.
An unmarked military convoy was seen driving through parts of Cumbria and Lancashire with a photo taken of them driving on the M55.
The disarmament organization Campaign of Nuclear Disarmament (CND) said the trucks were carrying nuclear weapons because their tracker suggested Trident missiles were on board the convoy of military trucks.

The Trident program which arms a certain type of submarine is mainly in Scotland which acts as the UK’s nuclear deterrent.
CND spokesman Philip Gilligan said military convoys are “increasingly frequent” and could affect those living in and around the areas.
Speaking to Lancashire Live Gilligan said: ‘These very dangerous convoys appear to be carrying nuclear warheads past our homes, schools and hospitals with ever increasing frequency.
“At the same time, those of us who are most likely to be affected by an accident involving a single person receive little, if any, information about when they will pass our homes or the specific dangers involved. .”
Gilligan added: “At a minimum, we need to know if, and exactly how, we can begin to protect ourselves and our children from plutonium and uranium particles emitting alpha emissions that could be dispersed if an explosion resulted. an accident involving one of these MoD carriers?
“Better yet, these convoys should be completely removed from our roads.
“We don’t need nuclear missiles, and we would all be much safer without them on our roads.”
Russia has repeatedly threatened nuclear war against the UK and recently threatened that the first nuclear missile would hit London first.
A foreign policy expert and former aide to Margaret Thatcher has warned Vladimir Putin that if he launched nuclear weapons at the West, it would be “the end of Russia”.
Putin is very desperate and there are real fears that he is plotting revenge and could launch nuclear weapons to win the war in Ukraine.
Former Thatcher aide Nile Gardiner previously told Express.co.uk: “The reality is that Russia using nuclear weapons would be the end of Russia, and they know it.
“This has been the situation since World War II, and all Russian leaders since then understand that Russia taking the first step with a nuclear strike would be the end of Russia.
“Even the UK alone has the capability to cripple Russia with its nuclear arsenal, let alone what the US has at its disposal.”
