A friend of mine living in the Gloucestershire area (who wishes to remain anonymous) to whom I passed on your article sent me the comments below received by him that add more weight to your suggestion that this was a Russian attack unreported by the MSM:”On the eastbound carriageway three miles west of M4 junction 13 is a large exit labelled Works Access Only. It leads to a road, not marked on any map, that disappears over a hill. The millennium map on the internet shows a large array of rectangular structures. Is it anything I should worry about?Jeff Knaggs, Stevenage, Herts
• Here or hereabouts can be found the atomic bomb factory of Burghfield Common… just south of the M4 at Reading. It isn’t on any map I’ve seen. Perhaps the two are related? If so, worrying is certainly in order.

• The answer, quite obviously, is yes.

• Locals maintain that this slip road leads to RAF Welford, which was used as a base by the US during the cold war. This would explain the rectangular shapes on the millennium map – they are missile silos. My mother, who lives near Newbury, has always maintained that the cruise missiles, allegedly at nearby Greenham Common, were in fact based at Welford. This would make sense, if only in terms of transport logistics. Cruise missiles were designed to be mobile and capable of being launched from any part of the country. To reach the M4 from Greenham (in the 80s) necessitated driving through Newbury, whereas Welford has its own private slip road. Perhaps all the women who so persistently protested against the cruise missiles were actually camping in the wrong place after all.
