An anti-nuclear protestor who brought an armed Ministry of Defence convoy to a halt is facing jail. Brian Quail (78) lay underneath an armoured personnel carrier as the convoy passed beneath Stirling Castle en route to the Royal Navy’s base at Coulport on Loch Long. His actions caused the 800-metre string of vehicles to come to an immediate halt, blocking a crucial roundabout beside Stirling fire station and causing traffic chaos for nearly 30 minutes at the start of the evening rush hour. After a three hour trial, Justice of the Peace Michael Bromby found Quail guilty and fined him £200 – a penalty Quail immediately said he would not pay, putting him at risk of jail.
