BRITAIN ON ALERT: Navy prepares to scramble as Russian nuclear battleship heads TOWARDS UK

A NATO source told the Telegraph: “It’s not catching us by surprise, we are working up what to do and we are all over it.

“The most likely thing is that they will go through the North Sea, down the Dover Strait, and through the Channel.”

Concerns over Britain’s ability to monitor the vessels has been heightened as the UK no longer has its own surveillance planes due to funding cut-backs.

A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said: “UK and NATO assets routinely monitor warships from other nations when they enter our area of interest and this will be no different.”
