TWO peace protesters from Huddersfield were arrested in a controversial protest.
The pair were arrested and kept overnight in police cells following an anti-nuclear weapons protest.
Quakers Anne Bettys, 55, from Helme, and Brett Fletcher, 47, of Marsh, were arrested by police after staging a sit down protest in front of the Faslane Naval Base, 25 miles from Glasgow.
The protest was part of the Faslane 365 - a year-long sit-down campaign to stop vehicles entering the Trident nuclear missile-equipped submarine base.
The year round protest, against the multi-billion pound project, has led to regular arrests.
Ms Bettys and Mr Fletcher, two of 15 arrested on one day this week, were accused of a breach of the peace and were detained overnight.
But the pair were released without charge the following day.
Ms Bettys, a receptionist and events assistant at Kirklees Museums, said: "Quakers have a long history of pacifism.
"It was quite scary. When we went on the Sunday the police were more relaxed. The following morning they wouldn't let us across the road so we couldn't block the entrance.
"We managed to stop traffic going in for half an hour. The police obviously wanted to get us away from there very quickly but we were nicely treated.
"I've never been arrested before but being locked up wasn't quite as scary as I thought it would be.
"I'm glad we're still allowed to protest."
Mr Fletcher, an artist and photographer, said: "I find it ironic I was arrested for breaching the peace when they've got nuclear weapons in Faslane.
"After the event the police treated us well but during the protest they were a bit rough. The police themselves virtually admitted it was a waste of time. I would certainly do it again."
