Video: Trident protest - Jeremy Corbyn leads calls to scrap nuclear system


Thousands of people opposed to the renewal of the multibillion-pound Trident nuclear system marched through London in the biggest demonstration of its kind for a generation.

Anti-nuclear protesters from across the UK armed themselves with placards and banners as they braced the bitter winds whipping around the centre of the capital to spread their message.

The group - estimated by stewards to run into "many tens of thousands" - were joined on the marches by SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon and her Plaid Cymru counterpart Leanne Wood, with organisers hoping the event would send a strong message of growing support against renewing the nuclear weapons system.
