North Korea could have the capability to strike London with a rocket “within the next 12 to 18 months”, General Sir Richard Barrons has warned.

General Barrons said Britain’s defence was “close to breaking” and would “fall over” unless more money was put in amid feard of World War 3.

Speaking to the Commons Defence Select Committee, he said Islamic State could also find nuclear weapons and fire them at the UK.

And he warned Russia was also a threat as times had moved on from the relative safety of 20 years ago.

He said: “We now live in an age where people who are not on our side have capability that they could, I’m not saying they will, but could, inflict on the UK homeland at short notice which we can’t deal with.

“We aren’t living in the comfortable waters of the 1990s and we have not yet addressed that.

“Defence is close to breaking and unless you put more money in it, it will fall over.

“There are clearly existential threats to our country and they come in many forms.
