Stop North Korea nuclear weapons programme before UK in range, warns Defence Secretary



North Korea's nuclear weapons programme must be stopped before its missiles can strike the UK , the Defence Secretary has warned.

Sir Michael Fallon argued war with the rogue state must be avoided "at all costs" and underlined the need to reach a diplomatic solution, amid heightened tensions.


The dangers of a "miscalculation" which could provoke a military action from North Korea were "extremely great", Sir Michael told the BBC's Andrew Marr.

The celebrations followed an announcement by the nation's state media claiming the regime had detonated a hydrogen bomb with "perfect success".
