THIS is the moment a nuclear warhead convoy passed through Glasgow accompanied by a police escort.

Footage found by the Nukewatch Twitter account shows three warhead carriers travelling along the M74 in the city’s Southside.

A police escort accompanied the military trucks, which the account said were travelling on Monday.

The account tracks and monitors the movement of Britain’s nuclear arsenal throughout the country.
