Five anti-nuclear protestors have been arrested at the Faslane submarine base near Helensburgh.

Those arrested include two survivors of the atomic bomb attacks on Nagasaki in Japan in 1945.

A spokeswoman for the protest group Faslane 365 said four Japanese men and a Finnish woman had tied themselves to the gates of the base with bamboo.

Police confirmed five people were charged with breach of the peace following protests at the Faslane base.

A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.
