GP arrested after nuclear protest
A Somerset GP was arrested after taking part in a protest against the Government's nuclear weapons programme.
Dr Richard Lawson travelled with peace campaigners to join a demonstration outside the submarine base at Faslane, near Glasgow, to call for the cancelling of Trident.
Along with other protesters his arrest came after he staged a lie-down protest and blocked the road outside the base.
Dr Lawson, 60, who practises in Congresbury, Somerset, spent 10 hours in Strathclyde Police Station. He said: 'It's important to stand up and be counted – or, in this case, lie down and be arrested.'
