On 23 January a group of activists from Scotland, including members of Faslane Peace Camp, carried out an unannounced blockade of AWE. Eight people were arrested

Using lock-ons, the group stopped traffic around the base on the A340 for four hours while the police scrambled a cutting team. Construction traffic for the base was turned away.
