Brits would only have a four-minute warning of an attack in an emergency nuclear broadcast, a TikTok video has said.

The American TikToker has taken to the social media platform in a video reportedly describing how Brits would find out about an impending nuclear attack.

According to @Americansoldier, should Russia's despotic, tyrannical President Vladimir Putin decide to take his efforts to plunge the world into war another step further – and launch a nuclear attack on the UK – we would have just four minutes warning.

And the man has created, what he claims is, the UK's warning video which would be played out on all television networks.

A black and white warning screen, with the words “Wartime Broadcasting Service” in the middle, would be accompanied by a message, which reads: “This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons, find shelter before the countdown expires.

"We shall be on the air every hour, on the hour, stay tuned to this channel.

“The ‘all clear’ message will also be given on this channel.”

“Radioactive fall-out which follows a nuclear explosion is many times more dangerous.

“Especially if you are directly exposed to it in the open.

“Roofs and walls offer substantial protection. The safest place is indoors.

“Make sure gas and other fuel supplies are turned off and that all fires are extinguished.”

A voice-over message would also be playing.

It would say, he predicts: “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.”

His predictions of what would happen do have a small grain of truth in them, however, as the country's Wartime Broadcasting Service would be turned on – with sirens and emergency mobile communication messages being sent out should an attack happen.

According to the BBC, a message recorded by the late-Peter Donaldson, chief continuity announcer for BBC Radio 4 may be played shortly after.

Part of the 500-word announcement would say: “This is the Wartime Broadcasting Service.

“This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons.

“Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known.

“We shall bring you further information as soon as possible.

“Meanwhile, stay tuned to this wavelength, stay calm and stay in your own house.

“Remember there is nothing to be gained by trying to get away – by leaving your homes you could be exposing yourself to greater danger.

“If you leave, you may find yourself without food, without water, without accommodation and without protection.

“Radioactive fall-out, which follows a nuclear explosion, is many times more dangerous if you are directly exposed to it in the open.”

Despite this, Professor John Preston told the Sun a few years ago: "The BBC has a policy called 'Connecting in a Crisis'. It will have protocols in place but we, as the public, don't know what they are.”
