FOUR protesters have been found guilty of aggravated trespass, while blockading the entrance to the nuclear weapons factory in Burghfield. The Atomic Weapons Establishment Burghfield, five miles southwest of Reading, makes nuclear warheads for the UK’s Trident missiles. Activists from Trident Ploughshares blockaded the entrance to the factory on October 24, last year. They locked themselves to cars and to each other to create barriers across the roads into the site. Four of them were found guilty last week of aggravated trespass at a trial in High Wycombe magistrates court.
