UK may only get ‘4 minute warning of nuclear attack’ from emergency broadcast

Brits would only have four minutes to prepare for nuclear armageddon, a video on social media has speculated.

American TikToker @Americansoldier took to the popular video-sharing site to create what he claims would be the nation’s warning video, which would be played on all TV networks if the big red button were pressed and the lives of millions in the UK were put in danger.

The terrifying video opens with a black and white screen displaying the words “Wartime Broadcasting Service”, along with a voiceover declaring: “Attention, attention. The UK is currently under attack from nuclear weapons. You have approximately four minutes to find shelter.

“Communications have been severely disrupted. The number of casualties and the extent of the damage is not yet known.”

The prediction comes following a harrowing address by Russian despot Vladimir Putin, threatening to use “any means necessary” against the West in response to what he described as a campaign of “nuclear blackmail”.

The dictator said: “If the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we use all available means to protect our people – this is not a bluff.”
