Scotland's papers: Trident vote and 'trouble decker'

MPs have voted to renew the UK's nuclear deterrent, with Theresa May saying during the debate that she would be prepared to order a nuclear strike killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people, says The Scotsman.

The Herald writes that after Westminster voted to replace Trident, the SNP leadership have suggested that the controversial decision could accelerate the move towards Scottish independence.

Meanwhile, The National says that "Scotland has spoken" after only one Scottish MP voted along with the majority decision at Westminster. The paper writes that "if the UK wants Trident, it'll have to find somewhere else to keep it".
