Marchers meet at military range
A marathon anti-nuclear march has visited the weapons testing range at Dundrennan near Kirkcudbright.

The Footprints for Peace walk is an 86-day tour of sites connected with the nuclear industry around the UK and Ireland.

The protestors are concerned about the firing of depleted uranium shells at the south west Scotland base.

The walkers stopped in prayer outside the site before heading on to hold a public meeting in the village.

The event started in Dublin on 12 May and hopes to finish in London on 4 August.

Along the way the organisers say they hope to raise awareness in communities about the nuclear industry.
