Huge fire off M4 near Boxford
Motorists were able to see explosions and thick smoke billowing from the site near Boxford.
One Twitter user user, Charlotte Ward, suspected the fire to be raging at the munition dump at RAF Welford.
One day ago – RAF emergency: Huge cloud of smoke descends across M4 after ‘explosion’ near Welford base (
Can’t find any mention on the BBC, which is curious. 
Did they cover it?  Not that I can see. 
The notion that fireworks would be stored nearby doesn’t wash! 
This is the US’ second largest weapons store in Europe SHAFE – and the largest in Britain.
It’s really most suspicious.
The above video makes it clear that Britain could not stop old fashioned missiles from coming in, let alone Russia’ newer hypersonic varieties like Kalibr.Was a Kalibr used to knock out the Welford Depot?  If so, shouldn’t someone tell Britain that she is once more at war.  The price of meddling in Ukraine.Only yesterday Russia sent a formal letter to the US warning of ‘unpredictable consequences’ if America and Britain carry on taking part in the Ukraine crisis.Britain’s Deputy Sec Of Defence then admitted that the SAS are in Kiev training Ukrainians in how to fire anti-tank missiles, as if to say – well carry on, Mr Putin.  The US reply about assisting Ukraine militarily was ‘guilty as charged’.Putin’s given many warnings.  So here’s some action.  Maybe just like the one that struck the massive bunker in Western Ukraine, the Welford Bunker was penetrated by a hypersonic missile, travelling at Mach 7 so you don’t hear the missile until after impact.Wikipedia – Welford is now under the command of the 420th Munitions Squadron, and comes under the command of the 501st Combat Support Wing, with headquarters at RAF Alconbury, which provides support to the Geographically Separated Units (GSU)s in the United Kingdom.[16] storage unit EXPLODES near RAF Welford sending clouds of smoke over M4 – Mirror Online

Firefighters were called to the Westbrook area near RAF Welford in Newbury on Saturday to an incident they said could be caused by fireworks

The M4 was closed in both directions on Saturday as firefighters battled a building fire blaze believed to involve fireworks.

Emergency services were called to the Westbrook area near RAF Welford in Newbury to an incident they said could be caused by pyrotechnics.

Explosions were heard by passersby, who filmed huge plumes of smoke rising above the site.

No injuries had been reported by Saturday evening.

The motorway was reopened at approximately 5.30pm.

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “At 1.41pm on Saturday, 16 April, we received reports of a fire at an industrial building in Westbrook, Newbury.

“Two Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) crews from Newbury, one crew from Theale and two Officers have currently been sent to the scene, together with crews from Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

“Firefighters have found a fire involving possible pyrotechnics and fireworks. Cordons are in place, but people are urged to stay away from the area while emergency services deal with this fire.”

Fire closes M4: Explosions heard as huge blaze breaks out in Berkshire (

Debris landing on the M4 – two miles from the fire.  Some fireworks!!!

In video woman interviewed in Boxford, said she decided to clear off due to a black cloud of smoke heading her way.  Boxford south of the M4 maybe 3 miles from the explosion.  There would definitely not be an industrial unit at that address, and would they allow fireworks even if there was.  This is an MOD cover story for an explosion at the base, my opinion a Russian Mach 7 Khinsal missile the most likely cause, able to penetrate any bunker.

TAP – All the links to this story are being cut.  The story will be erased from memory, another sign that it is a Russian military act.  The video’s not there any more.  Reloading….Russia delivered an ultimatum to US and UK the day before the Welford strike, warning of ‘unintended consequences’ from Britain assisting in war-making in Ukraine.  Both the US and the UK declared an intention to carry on assisting Ukraine’s war.  The US reply was covered in the Washington Post.

    I live near Eastriggs munitions depot. There is a burning ground there where they spread out, out of date munitions. They set a fuse then retreat into a shelter until it’s burned. The burnings have often been mistaken for problems including car crashes etc especially by non locals. Is it possibly the same. Possibly it is a real attack, just that was my first thought.

    • ian says:

      That’s my option gone then Tap, time will, “possibly”, expose the real cause if it’s acceptable to expose?.

  2. Tapestry says:

    Local resident Charlotte Ward said she was in the play park in Boxford village when she heard ‘explosions’ she believed were coming from RAF Welford’s munitions depot.

    She told she heard a ‘huge bang followed by a plume of smoke and then 10s of smaller bangs and other sounds, with explosions and more plumes’.

    She added: ‘It sounded like rockets or gas canisters exploding and flying into the air. Huge fire was raging for half an hour. Black smoke started to drift out way so we decided to leave.’ Local resident Charlotte Ward said she was in the play park in Boxford village when she heard ‘explosions’ she believed were coming from RAF Welford’s munitions depot.

    The problem in NATO can’t wait for WW3 to get started.

    Metro had a banner came on saying Putin says April 16th is the day WW3 started. The letter he wrote to the Defence Secretary only mentioned unforeseeable consequences if the UK/US continued supplying Ukraine’s NATO-commanded forces.

  3. Tapestry says:

    Jim Stone is billing the explosion as a false flag as in – A big blast happened near Welford base in Britain
    People said they saw a missile incoming that did it, so Russia will be blamed. Who really did it? Probably not Russia. I’d say the likely candidates are 1. Israel. 2. Ukraine. 3. The Pentagon. 4. Britain.
    If he was right, the story would be getting media. It’s being totally suppressed and being called a firework factory explosion in NEwbury. Newbury is south of the M4. This explosion(s) is north of the M4.

  4. Aldous says:

    The people of the United States actually have two national flags: one for our military government and another for the civil. Each one has fifty stars in its canton, and thirteen red and white stripes, but there are several important differences.

    Although most Americans think of the Stars and Stripes (above left ) as their only flag, it is actually for military affairs only. The other one, meant by its maker for wider use, (peacetime), has vertical stripes with blue stars on a white field (above right ). You can see this design, which bears civil jurisdiction, in the U.S. Coast Guard and Customs flags, but their service insignias replace the fifty stars…
    The U.S. government hasn’t flown the civil flag since the Civil War, as that war is still going on. Peace has never been declared, nor have hostilities against the people ended. The government is still operation under quasi-military rule.

  5. Aldous says:

    1891: The British Labour Leader makes the following statement on the subject of the Rothschilds,

    “This blood-sucking crew has been the cause of untold mischief and misery in Europe during the present century, and has piled up its prodigious wealth chiefly through fomenting wars between States which ought never to have quarrelled.Whenever there is trouble in Europe, wherever rumours of war circulate and men’s minds are distraught with fear of change and calamity you may be sure that a hook-nosed Rothschild is at his games somewhere near the region of the disturbance.”

    Comments like this worry the Rothschilds and towards the end of the 1800’s they purchase Reuters news agency so they can have some control of the media.

    1914: The start of World War I. In this war, the German Rothschilds loan money to the Germans, the British Rothschilds loan money to the British, and the French Rothschilds loan money to the French.

    Futhermore, the Rothschilds have control of the three European news agencies, Wolff (est. 1849) in Germany, Reuters (est. 1851) in England, and Havas (est. 1835) in France.

    The Rothschilds use Wolff to manipulate the German people into a fervour for war. From around this time, the Rothschilds are rarely reported in the media, because they own the media.

  6. Aldous says:

    75 years is a very long time without a global conflict when you consider the 21 or so years between World Wars I and 2.
    I can’t see anything stopping what’s about to happen when you consider and observe the almost certainly jabbed brain-dead sheeple still wearing muzzles/face diapers and ‘praying for Ukraine’ instead of ‘praying for Peace’.
    Places of worship are surely amongst the worst examples of such double standards and hypocrisy.
    Christ wouldn’t approve that’s for sure.

    Not far away there is AWRE Aldermaston. There was a recent southbound vehicle convoy (last week) with armed escort fire engines on nearby A34. Something tubular carried by several 40ft articulated trucks needing a very very high level of security.

    • Mr Dude says:

      That will be Trident missiles I’ve seen those conveys a few times. Mega security. They go up north to Faslane on the A1 sometimes.

        It’s time those dangerous toys were got rid of. Maybe our Vlad can help.

        Why not just fire the smart little buggers with their pinpoint accuracy up to Faslane and parachute them in? I’m sure the Jocks wouldn’t mind.

        First Nuclear Truth Video (Jesse Waugh’s Nuke Lies, 2008) 7:13

      • pete fairhurst says:

        Interesting intro video thanks Aldous. He quite rightly points out that the Manhatten project was led by an Oppenheimer, one of the mega rich families. One of the last persons who we should trust to tell us the truth about anything, never mind something so important

        [Aside: This reminds me of the Rasputin story. When I was in St Petersburg in 2019 I visited the palace where the Rasputin drama was supposed to have been acted out. It was a massive, opulent, billionaires palace and I was totally sceptical as a result. Billionaires palaces are the last place that would ever be used for such an event in reality. The perp was supposed to be the son a of the Russian billionaire too! As if the billionaire couldn’t afford to hire an assassin! Totally ridiculous. The Rasputin story is horseshit from top to bottom]

        I found the Nuke Lies site easily enough, it’s been “frozen” since 2012. It looks like an interesting place but also a massive rabbit hole. You could get lost in there for weeks. So I won’t invest any energy in there, I’m happy to believe that we have seen zero empirical evidence that nukes have ever existed, or been used. It is far more comfortable to believe that they don’t really exist, so there is nothing to worry about

  8. Aldous says:

    It may be necessary to copy and paste that Nuke Lies tinyurl link but it does work and isn’t corrupted. – It works now that I’ve copied it correctly!
    The ‘smoking gun’ for me about the nuclear fraud is Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
    Nuclear radiation/contamination is supposed to have a 25,000 year or something ‘half life’ before it has decreased to some kind of safe level(sic) for life to exist. Yet look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki today:

    Nagasaki Medical College then and now

  9. Aldous says:

    @ pete fairhurst
    I thought about posting the link you refer to Pete but decided not to. Some awful truths can be too hard to handle for lots (if not most) people. The links not that hard to find anyway – unlike the Jesse Waugh’s Nuke Lies video which has been scrubbed from most controlled websites.
    It’s a bit like talking about the Holohoax which I avoid like the plague.

    It certainly seems that nuclear power stations are dressed up as such but are nothing but necessary ‘dumploads’ to dissipate the pressure generated on the National Grid(s) when the demand drops off too dramatically and the failsafe dumpload automatically kicks in.
    This stuff is far too much for most people to handle or comprehend so I also avoid talking about it, even when I’m wasted – which is most of the time these days.
    My few genuine friends – I mainly just know people which has its serious advantages – know my motto in life these days:
    “Ignore me, sneak your rounds onto my tab, make a pass at my missus, just don’t ever bore me.”

    • pete fairhurst says:

      Thanks Aldous, I agree it’s far too much for normies, but I expect that Tap readers are much more open minded, so I don’t hold back here

      I’m the same as you about the holohoax too. I found out the hard way just how easily folk get very angry if you challenge their core brainwashing. Nick Kollerstrom opened my eyes to that one when I read his excellent book “Breaking the Spell” several years ago. Funnily enough I was reading a good review of that book only yesterday at Unz

      His opening paragraphs make exactly the same point

      • ian says:

        That’s the book that got me thrown out of my brother’s house pete. I thought, surely this’ll wake them. They don’t want woken, it’s much easier in their world.

      • pete fairhurst says:

        Ditto Ian! It was too much for him to handle

        I agree, such folk are very comfortable in their fantasy world, it’s much easier that way for them for sure

        But still, I would find that an insidious, obnoxious position, out of the question for me to be deliberately living a lie. It’s easier for atheists of course, they don’t have a spiritual dimension do they

  10. Tapestry says:

    This was sent in a comment in another thread as if to explain Welford.

    • ian says:

      An interesting little video Tap’. excellent.

      • Tapestry says:

        Yes Ian. Did you notice that it too is full of unlikely tales. ‘Inexperienced staff’ ‘a farm that completely disappeared leaving no trace’ ‘a worker using a metal tool to work on a detonator’. The place was blown sky high. How would anyone know about the metal chisel being used? As this event in 1944 was also covered in lies and still is covered in lies as in the video, it suggests the explosion had another cause as with Welford. At Welford, you might look at the likelihood of Russian hypersonic Khinsal missile. In 1944 at Fauld, a German bunker busting bomb. The British had them, Barnes Wallis and all. Why not Germany? The lie factory hasn’t changed, and the degree of gullibility of the public, only the enhancement in the technology of the weaponry! The ‘fireworks factory’ narrative is a lie. The location of the explosion was moved four miles into Newbury. The lies are so flippin obvious. Yet not even alternative media is looking at it. Very strange. People still don;t get it that Britain is at war not only in Ukraine but also in Syria, Yemen, Libya, and Iraq. It’s as if our safety bubble would be punctured if anything military happened on our soil. Well it just did last Saturday massively, but no one wants to know.

      • ian says:

        Yes Tap, it did seems a bit too movie like, the story he told. I never thought of the chisel though and just spluttered coffee everywhere when i read your comment. Of course they couldn’t know what kind of chisel or what happened. Very likely a German attack that they didn’t want to acknowledge.

      • pete fairhurst says:

        Yes I agree. Both incidents are suspicious, the WW2 and the recent one. And yes the lies are so obvious, in both cases. Hollywood scripts are FICTIONAL and both these read like Hollywood scripts

        You are right Tap, British people just don’t get it at all. They’ve been brainwashed to think that “our” side are the good guys. When usually the reality is the exact opposite. This holds true for most big stories now, the best way to read the propaganda is to reverse what they say by 180 degrees. That will usually get you closer to the truth

        If “Newbury” was a Russian missile they our lot will know that for sure. They must know what the real capability of the other side is anyhow and it must give them pause for thought. If the can drop one on Newbury then, they can drop one on number 10 too

        To be honest, if it was a missile then, it is best that “our” side say nothing. If they did reveal that then, the brainwashed masses would be demanding retaliation, which is the last thing that is in any of our interests

  11. Tapestry says:

    What do the bankers think they are doing? They clearly want a war to break out between NATO and Russia, maybe China too. Is that because they think NATO will win one? I’m not so sure. Chinese and Russian technology seems to be far more modern in missiles and aircraft than NATO’s at this stage – unless some new super weapons exist, not yet seen on the field of battle. If the bankers want a war that NATO will lose, then they clearly want America, Europe and the rest destroyed including Britain. Are they already preparing to do a flip and turn up in China next? What else could their plan be? Russia would just be a stepping stone setting up NATO for ultimate defeat by China. Then the square off between Russia and China might be tricky, unless they negotiate and reach a peaceful settlement. Personally I would prefer to end up in the Russian sector. But that’s why NATO is being engaged with Russia first – to leave Russia a spent force after a war with NATO, giving China easy pickings at the end – like the USA in WW2. China has a Communist system of government which would not be fun to be ruled by. At least a Russian government would be mostly human, it would appear from their behaviour towards prisoners. We should be allying with Russia as soon as possible, after getting rid of Westminster, Boris the Butcher and his ranks of cronies. I would prefer to be British of course and reinstate our democracy but will that be an option. I will support Robin Tilbrook and the English Democrats in case he can prevent war, bring peace and save England. I think English people should be told their land is under attack from Russia. We must trust in the common sense of the people in the end of the day, as we can’t trust governments.

    • pete fairhurst says:

      I agree with all that in principle Tap. Like you my instinct is to hope that Russia prevails against it’s assault by the current globalist neoliberal hegemon. They’ve been very consistent in warning the “west” about the consequences of it’s endless provocation of the Bear

      The west’s AngloZioEmpire is clearly failing, it really deserves to in truth. It’s failure is likely hit the UK hard of course, maybe not as hard as the EU. Which is governed by Empire puppets who shoot their nations in the temple when instructed to by head office

      And yes, in principle English people should be told the truth about any incoming missiles. But where to start with such truth telling, there are so many options. There is so much deception now isn’t there, probably always was in reality. Any real truth telling would destroy the world view of most Brits, the rabbit holes are virtually endless. The warren is ginormous and quite beyond the comprehension of most English folk

      That conversation earlier in this thread about the nukes, and the holohoax, are just 2 examples that prove this point. There are many, many, others

      • ian says:

        Hi pete, sadly, to my shame, I got a Viz annual for a Christmas present. I like the humour, or obviously some of it. My point? In a readers letter section, Mr Bladderwilly, asked if anyone knew a stronger swear word than c*nt, as his inlaws were staying over and he needed to talk to them. If you can think of one, please let me know, as that’s what I’m starting to think of the maskie sheeple.

      • pete fairhurst says:

        No I can’t Ian. But the old “Derek and Clive live” album does come to mind, from the 1970’s, if I remember correctly

        You faackin caant!”

      • ian says:

        I loved Pete and Dud. Much copied but seldom equalled. Marlena Deitreich scratching at his window, scratch, scratch, scratch. Loved it.

  12. Tapestry says:

    As for Pete and Dud, a missile that hits home is called a fireworks factory blowing up. Next we have a meteorite shower to explain one being shot down…It would be funny if wasn’t actually happening.

    • ian says:

      Yes Tap, to admit the attacks would make Britain look cowardly, as we’re only tough when we’re fighting third world countries with the USA. We’d in theory have to reply, so yes better to lie and pretend that it never happened.

    • pete fairhurst says:

      Yes we live in bizarro world now

      The only comfort that I can take from this is that, if they are incoming missiles then, at least they are being targeted at our military installations, NOT our civilians

      “Our” nazi friends of in zone 404 [as Andrei Martyanov calls Ukraine] would have no such qualms, nor would any nation in the AngloZioEmpire I imagine. The long history of English, and latterly US, military is replete with examples of the deliberate targeting of civilians

      Remember the “Area Bombing” of Germans by Bomber Harris’ Air Command in WW2? That was just a euphemism for targeting civilians. Also the firebombing by the US in Japan? Both were on a horrific scale, both clear war crimes. Both ignored at Nuremberg as far as I am aware. History is always written by the victors

      Further back then what about the Boer war with the English running the first “concentration”, ie. death, camps? The list is endless, I could go on and on

      The Russians don’t seem to be targeting civilians in 404 as far as I can make out, nor here if it is them. Maybe they are more civilized than “our” side is?

  13. Tapestry says:

    Did the US set Russian military research institute on fire? If so with what weapon? A beam weapon from space? There’s no destruction of the building, just a fire. Very strange. No claim made either way by either side. A war in denial as capabilities are being taken out – a great compliment to Russian military research. Hopefully the people just moved their offices and can continue work.
