A ceasefire takes effect in Syria - with the government and rebel factions agreeing to lay down their arms, in the hope of ending five years of bloodshed. The UN Security Council gives a unanimous green light to the truce - after a lengthy international effort, spearheaded by Russia and the United States. Crowds gather in London for what's expected to be the biggest anti-Trident protest in decades. Ahead of the protest in London a UK Navy whistleblower slammed Britain's Trident nuclear system, claiming terrorists can take advantage of many security lapses to get on board a submarine.
