The SS Richard Montgomery is packed with 1,400 tonnes of explosives that could flood much of the south east of the country if it is detonated.

The American World War 2 ship – dubbed the Doomsday Boat – lies in shallow waters off the Kent coast.

If triggered, the blast would cause one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in human history.

The wreck – which is visible by the three masts poking out of the sea – is protected round the clock by anti-terror cops.

They use video surveillance to provide an early warning system against a devastating attack.

But a top terror expert has told Daily Star Online that we shouldn’t be complacent.

Major Chris Hunter, an explosives expert who served in Iraq and Afghanistan for almost 20 years, said: “Clearly if this ship was able to be detonated then the resulting effects would be terrible, as for terrorists targeting it, it would be a very difficult thing for them to do.

“There is no reason to believe they have the intention or capability to carry out an attack of this kind.

“Terrorists will however adapt and develop their tactics over the coming years.
