GPs up in arms at nuclear base

More than 20 GPs joined other healthcare workers in a protest at the Faslane nuclear submarine base in Scotland last week.

The protest group, which is linked to the Medact charity, opposes the Government's plan to replace Trident with a new generation of nuclear missiles.

Dr Lesley Morrison (far left), a GP from Hawick in the Scottish Borders, was one of nine people arrested at the protest.

She told Pulse: 'It is immoral to consider killing large numbers of civilians indiscriminately. Trident shouldn't be replaced, it should be scrapped.'

The GPs handed out 'prescriptions' to people living nearby, prescribing dialogue to prevent nuclear war.
