On Friday 31st January a nuclear weapon convoy en route from Coulport to Burghfield stopped for an hour in the DSG base in Forthside. When in the DSG the convoy parks where it cannot be seen behind the large sheds to the west of the site. The transit may have been a training trip or the trucks could have been empty after depositing atomic warheads at Coulport, or they could have contained actual Trident warheads containing both plutonium and high explosive. The Peak leisure centre is within range should a detonation of the high explosive occur. Plutonium would be widely dispersed.
