More than 30,000 people could be killed if a North Korean hydrogen bomb was detonated in the centre of Liverpool, according to a computer programme. The website Nukemap predicts that the blast from a 10 kiloton hydrogen bomb detonated at Liverpool Lime Street station could kill 90% of people within 0.7 miles of the station. North Korean officials claimed to have successfully completed a test of a 10kt bomb earlier this month – and there would be devastation in the improbable event that a bomb that big hit the city centre. The website calculates that a nuclear fireball would wipe out an area with a radius of 150m in all directions.
