Pub­lic meet­ing to dis­cuss nu­clear con­voys on roads

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

A pub­lic meet­ing was held on Mon­day to dis­cuss the highly con­tro­ver­sial is­sue of nu­clear con­voys trav­el­ling on the Ros­neath Penin­sula.

He­lens­burgh CND or­gan­ised the event, which took place fol­low­ing the pub­li­ca­tion of Un­ready Scot­land.

This is a re­port which has been com­piled by Nuke­watch, a net­work of in­di­vid­u­als who have been cam­paign­ing against nu­clear war­head con­voys trav­el­ling along our roads.

The doc­u­ment ex­am­ines the prac­ti­cal­i­ties of re­spond­ing to a ma­jor in­ci­dent or ac­ci­dent in a densely pop­u­lated area in­volv­ing the con­voys.

It also con­cludes that the rel­e­vant civil au­thor­i­ties would be un­likely to be able to cope in the event of a ma­jor ac­ci­dent oc­cur­ring in­volv­ing these con­voys.
