This may be a nothing - may be a something!

Came across this story on FB, covered by a SE U.K. News site…



Questions have been raised after a huge police convoy was spotted travelling through Kent last night.

Shocked motorists on the M25 spotted the enormous fleet of cars and vans which appeared to be escorting a truck carrying a huge, covered object.

The convoy, which also appears to include Highways vehicles, is thought to have been first picked up leaving Kent into Essex.


Mystery over Kent Police M25 convoy from Kent into Essex

There’s a video at the link which I can’t copy to this OP, so you’ll have to watch it there.

There’re are plausible theories on the page’s comments; perhaps a radioactive large machine part from the nearby Sheerness nuclear plant currently being decommissioned.

Some suggest radio active materials, but if if was something that could be broken down into smaller parts then surely it’d be easier to do that and transport in by train. This object shrouded in black on the truck is probably too wide for a train (for tunnels etc).

It could be a machine part for tunnelling, but why such a huge police convoy?

Could be a gold convoy, but as someone replied in the comments they tend to do that without a fuss, keeping a low profile. Also, why not do that via train.

Someone suggested something to do with nuclear subs! Way out of my depth (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun).

One thing that leaps out from the headline is the location: from Kent to Essex (which sits east of London). Essex hit the headlines yesterday for having one of the 2 U.K. omicron cases (the other being in Nottinghamshire (further north). But that’s most likely just a coincidence. I can’t see what the object on that truck could be that relates to a new Covid variant. But then again, what do I know?

So, I leave this little mystery in hands of those far more enlightened than me. Looking forward to the feedback, if any 🤪

Sub Nuclear reactor?

The only time I've seen this much Police presence when on escorting duty is when they are moving Nuclear missiles, but the shape of this vessel on the back of the transporter is all wrong.

It's obviously sensitive whatever the hell they are protecting. Could it be a big batch of Warheads? Whereabouts in England do they ship the Warheads from?.
I'll keep an eye out for any reports of this convoy heading for Faslane.

Its interesting. I would also like to see if what ever it is gets shipped to India also.

If there were Hazmat teams in the convoy, that would suggest some decommissioned reactor component that would need to be heavily protected to prevent it falling into hands that would make dirty use of it.

I would not have thought that this was a nuclear move, as that is usually escorted in some way by the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (even when conveyed by rail).

It could just simply be an STGO move that was deemed a higher risk due to Insulate Britain and/or Terrorist threat levels being higher than normal. It's travelling at 30mph on the motorway, so motorcycle outriders are not as necessary as they would be in the Special Escort Group. To be honest, the load just looks like a really big reel of cable!

The size of the convoy certainly justifies the warhead explanation. But conversely shoving them on the back of a truck seems a bit precarious for something so dangerous and valuable. Also, wouldn’t there be a large military presence in the convoy? I’m asking because I honestly haven’t a clue 🍺

There was indeed a comment on the source page that suggested cable for wind farms. Not very exciting, but that’s something to be grateful for in these interesting times.

Edit: however, would an STGO warrant that many police cars? I can’t paste it here, but there’s a comment on the Source page addressing this with a pic of an enormous JCB being transported - far bigger than this truck & cargo - being escorted by a single police car. Maybe that was an aboration and this long line of police cars is the norm, dunno!

Also, the account says that there was 2 more police cars joint the convoy at each junction they passed. Again, that doesn’t reveal anything - just another nugget.

The United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority Constabulary (UKAEAC) is a relatively small outfit with a limited remit outside of Nuclear Infrastructure, and local geographic police are responsible for escorts in their own areas.

From the comments, a response which appears to have received a lot of up votes and agreement....


Its part of a tunnel boring machine for HS2, the huge amount of escort vehicles was to deter any activists from trying to stop the convoy and interfere with it.

You don't need that amount of police to escort Copper cable. In fact, you don't need any at all.

Bogroll during a New variant pandemic?. Maybe off to Lidl with the last batch of Cushelle butternut scented triple-ply.

Just looking at the diameter of the covered object I’m saying alien Ufo...joking!

It looks like a component for a tunnel boring machine maybe the main rotating head for the rock face.

I saw that comment, but dismissed it due to the HS2 build having been cancelled this week. As HS2 is northern England this would’ve made sense if the transport were heading south away from the build, but it’s heading north.

Maybe that’s wrong - I’m applying common sense rather than actual knowledge and that’s often a recipe for talking out of one’s backside

You beat me too it, it looks like a tbm component being circular and heavy.

No police cars are required for mining equipment. It's not a particularly wide or long/oversized load by the looks of it. Something Nuclear is my guess.

I hope so, as it was replaced in 2005.

With a CNC unit in Dungeness though, you would have thought that coming from Kent, escorting nuclear materials in transit would be well within their existing remit. Particularly with the current increase in both terrorist and Insulate Britain activity in the UK.

Here in Victoria straya, they were moving a turbine compressor from a coal fired power station to be reconditioned in Germany there was a mass motorcade for it as it apparently was a weight of 300 tonnes, with a similar motorcade.

More than likely it is a nuclear component, though

Been part of a similar convoy in Aus when processed nuclear waste was being conveyed to its permanent storage facility. Looks exactly the same.
