- Police ‘unable to contain’ nuclear threat
- Spectre of nuclear attack ‘impossible to ignore’
- Countries must ‘work together’ to prevent destruction
March 9, 2012
Stateless terrorists are closer to unleashing a nuclear attack on Britain than ever before, Nick Clegg will warn today.
The Deputy Prime Minister will say materials and internet instructions on how to make a ‘dirty bomb’ have become so readily available in recent years that police forces are unable to contain such a threat.
Al Qaeda are already known to be actively trying to amass nuclear material and recruit rogue scientists to build a radioactive ‘dirty bomb’ while diplomatic temperatures between Iran and the West are at boiling point.
Mr Clegg will issue a plea for more co-operation between countries to fight the spectre of terrorism, crime and economic collapse in a speech at the Hague this evening, the Daily Telegraph reported.
