The nuclear emergency siren at Portsmouth’s naval base will be sounded tomorrow.

The alarm is due for a routine test at 9.30am on Friday, June 28.

The sound, a wavering tone, will last for one minute.

A spokesman for the base said: ‘By agreement with the local authorities, the siren is tested three times a year – on the last working days in February, June and October – as part of the nuclear accident response plan for the naval base and in accordance with Portsmouth and Gosport councils’ nuclear safety plan.’
