On Saturday tens of thousands of people protested in central London to oppose the renewal of the Trident nuclear weapons system. Activists travelled from around the country – from Penzance to Aberdeen – and marched from Speakers Corner to Trafalgar Square. Despite the cold, most people stayed in Trafalgar Square listening to speeches and waiting for Jeremy Corbyn to speak. His appearance at the end of the rally drew the biggest cheer of the afternoon.
