Campaigners from Bolton Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament are holding a one-hour vigil tomorrow at a Bolton missile factory.

CND members are protesting over arms sales to Saudi Arabia, in light of the Yemeni conflict, and the demo will coincide with the London Arms Fair.

Protestors are concerned the war in Yemen is in its seventh year, and has left many homeless or killed, four million internally displaced and 80 per cent of the population reliant on humanitarian aid.

Bolton CND wants the public to be aware of the food insecurity, malnutrition and cholera that have plagued Yemen since bombings began in March 2015, causing the destruction of hospitals, clinics, schools and mosques.

Campaigners say during this time, the government has supplied Saudia Arabia with £16bn of arms sales, logistical and intelligence support and training of Saudi pilots at RAF Valley on Anglesey.

MBDA is said to exports many of its products to the Saudi government to be used in the Yemen conflict.

Bolton CND claims the skilled workforce in MBDA could instead be helping improve useful health equipment or fight climate change.
