- There are only five declared nuclear weapon states: UK, US, France, Russia and China.
- UK is dependent on the US for technical support for Trident, its nuclear weapons system since the 1980s.
- Trident is a fleet of four submarines in Faslane, Scotland. One sub is on patrol at all times, known as Continuous At Sea Deterrence (CASD).
- Trident carries nuclear warheads. It’s more than 1,000 times more powerful than the bomb that hit Hiroshima in 1945.
