Plaid Cymru has launched its 2019 General Election manifesto, pledging to scrap Trident.

The party describes the nuclear deterrent as a "waste of money", claiming that stopping its renewal would allow for £205 billion to be invested in public services.

Plaid Cymru's manifesto goes on to say the party is "determined to prevent the renewal of a weapon of mass destruction and to scrap Trident".

The party also states it will resist "all attempts to relocate nuclear weapons in Wales or in Welsh waters".

Aside from Trident, it pledges to prevent cyber attacks by working with the Government and to base all Welsh regiments in Wales.

It also wants a vote in the Welsh Assembly before the UK goes to war and states any decision for military intervention overseas should require all four nations' support.

For military veterans, Plaid Cymru promises "excellent" healthcare, including for mental health, as well as "adequate housing".
