Anti-nuclear protesters attacked a convoy of nuclear warhead carriers with red paint to highlight the dangers of moving the weapons around Britain. Five vehicles carrying Trident warheads from Berkshire to Scotland were blockaded by three CND members as they stopped for lunch at RAF Leeming in Yorkshire.

The protesters, all women, walked into the path of the vehicles on a minor road and sprayed the cab of one of the carriers with red gloss paint, delaying the convoy by up to two hours. A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said: "We take no notice of CND protests."
