Anti-nuclear protesters fined for breaking into a military base have defended their actions.
The activists do not deny breaking into the nuclear site
They pleaded not guilty to breaking into the base at Burghfield, Berkshire, saying they were acting lawfully as keeping nuclear weapons was illegal.
But, on Wednesday, Reading Magistrates found them guilty of criminal damage, fining them between £50 and £100 each.
The six members of Trident Ploughshares say they were highlighting what they call Britain's WMD.
The court heard that a group was seen entering the site at around 1130 BST, distributing anti-nuclear literature and unfurling banners before being arrested.
The damage to the perimeter fence was estimated at £400.
Kathryn Amos, 26, of Ilkley, West Yorkshire, and Margaret and Bernadette Hutchby 44, of Leicester, were conditionally discharged for a year and ordered to pay £65 compensation each to the Atomic Weapons Establishment.
Zina Zelter, 30, also of Leicester, was fined £50 for criminal damage and a further £50 for breaching the terms of a previous conditional discharge. She was also ordered to pay £65 compensation.
Stephen Bonham, 48, of Leicester, and Margaret Charnley, 27, from Streatham, south London, both agreed to pay £100 to be bound over to keep the peace for a year at the start of the trial.
Speaking afterwards, Amos said: "It is crucial that our message is understood by those working on nuclear bases, we have no personal enmity against you.
"We believe that you need to be told the truth about your responsibilities under international law as well as British law."
