Liz Truss was 'obsessed with weather reports' in final days as PM fearing Putin nuke test would blow radiation to UK | The Sun

LIZ Truss was "obsessed with weather reports" in her final days as Prime Minister fearing a Putin nuke test could send radiation to the UK, it was reported last night.

Ms Truss is alleged to have thought strong winds would blow radioactive material from a Black Sea blast to Britain just like the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

Her fears were so severe that she reportedly considered plans to roll out a Cold War-era nuclear attack information campaign.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: "Liz was obsessed with the prevailing wind.

"We found her watching the weather forecasts with unusual interest."

Ms Truss's fears centred around the possibility of nuclear clouds forming over the UK.

If this happened, the nation would be at risk of fatal consequences, depending on how contaminated the environment would be.

Radiation causes immediate damage to cells and body tissue with many victims likely to die from internal bleeding and organ damage.

Ms Truss's fears allegedly made her consider triggering a "Protect and Survive plan".

The public information campaign ran between 1974 and 1980 advising Brits on how to protect themselves during a nuclear attack.

Since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, President Putin has repeatedly threatened the use of a nuke against the west.

The 70-year-old has threatened to trigger "judgment day" and that Russia "will certainly use all the means at our disposal".

And Mad Vlad has even rehearsed wiping Britain and the US off the map in chilling nuke drills, a top Russian military expert has claimed.

And following the Crimea Bridge blast – which took out a major supply route for Russia – intelligence officials warned Putin may hit the red button in retaliation.

When the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl exploded, most countries in Europe found traces of radioactive material within their borders.

But it was huge swathes of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus that were showered in radiation.

It comes Russian spies reportedly hacked Liz Truss' personal phone – gaining access to top secret information, sources have claimed.

Spooks working for President Putin are believed to be behind the breach which saw over a year of messages downloaded.

The hack was discovered during the summer Tory leadership campaign, when Ms Truss was Foreign Secretary.
