Scottish Labour members vote against Trident renewal


Scottish Labour members have backed a call for the UK's Trident nuclear missile system to be scrapped.

A motion opposing the renewal of Trident was debated by delegates at the party's conference in Perth, with trade unions, MSPs and other members split over the controversial issue.

The vote puts Scottish Labour at odds with the UK party, whose position continues to be to support the continuation of Trident, although UK leader Jeremy Corbyn is firmly against nuclear weapons.
