A new video by the RealLifeLore channel has elaborated on known locations of nuclear weapons, detailing that the main storage sites in the UK are 42 miles south west of London in the Berkshire village of Aldermaston, and 27 miles north west of Glasgow at Her Majesty's Naval Base Clyde.

The video also elaborates on how the United States keep weapons in various countries in Europe near Rotterdam, Milan, Cologne, Brussels, Adana and Venice.

The largest nuclear weapons complex in the world is located at the Kirtland Underground Munitions Maintenance and Storage Complex in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

There, 18 per cent of the world's nuclear weapons are stored. The weapons are disarmed and decommissioned at a compound in Amarillo, 50 miles away.

If you've driven between the cities you may have passed a reinforced truck carrying a nuclear weapon.
