The UK is examining options of how to respond to a war starting in Korea, as tensions intensify between the hermit kingdom and the international community.

Britain’s brand new aircraft carrier could be called into service earlier than planned under one scheme to fight Kim Jong-un’s army, sources have revealed to the Daily Mail.

The HMS Queen Elizabeth is still being tested and has not yet be handed over to the Navy.

The carrier along with the UK’s new F35Bs would be brought into service early and escorted to Korea by Type-45 destroyers and Type-23 frigates.

The proposal has been compared to the 1982 defence of the Falklands when the HMS Illustrious came into service ahead of schedule to travel to the islands.

Speaking at the Tory Party conference Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon outlined the threat posed by the volatile military power.

He said: “North Korea’s illegal testing underlines just how irresponsible it would be to scrap the deterrent that protects us.

“It is all very well Jeremy Corbyn saying he would never use nuclear weapons but Manchester and London are closer to Pyongyang than Los Angeles.”

Pyongyang recently threatened to unleash a “barrage of nuclear strikes” against the US.
