Danny Alexander: Move on from Cold War postures

There are alternatives to a like-for-like replacement of the Trident nuclear weapons system, says Danny Alexander.

The Lib Dem cabinet minister told the BBC that he had handed his report on Trident to the prime minister and deputy prime minister a fortnight ago.

The Lib Dems oppose a straight renewal of Trident, but the Conservatives say it would be "foolish" to abandon it.

Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, Mr Alexander said: "We can move on from the Cold War postures of the past".
