Cheeky estate agent reveals best places to live in the UK to survive a nuclear attack | The Sun

A CHEEKY estate agent has issued a guide to the best places to buy a house in the UK if you want to survive a nuclear attack.

Should Russian President Vladimir Putin strike, this handy map suggests those living in the North West of England should be safest – providing we're not all totally annihilated.

Also left standing could be much of North and West Wales – with Anglesey and Aberystwyth escaping with lower radiation than most other areas.

And coastal towns Dover, Folkestone, Margate and Whitby apparently have a good chance of getting off scot-free.

But Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh may be wiped out by a blast, so online agents eMoov suggest steering clear.

It's also best to avoid Leeds, Newcastle, Norwich, Norfolk, London, Southampton, Brighton and Cambridge, they say.

eMoov produced the map showing the property hot spots outside the predicted blast zones if 20 British cities were blitzed.

It was initially created over fears North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un might detonate Britain in 2017, but the same applies to concerns Putin could strike in 2022.

The tyrant this week fired off a terrifying nuke warning to Britain and the West, then declared: "This is not a bluff."

He issued the threat as he forcibly drafted 300,000 reservists into his disastrous war in Ukraine.

eMoov used a web tool called Nukemap to calculate the effects of 100-megaton strikes on London, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Hull, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cambridge, Norwich, Oxford, Bristol, Swansea, Southampton, Brighton, Plymouth, Liverpool and Sheffield.

It described how swathes of the UK would become "uninhabitable" due to a 40-mile thermal radiation radius from each warhead.

So it highlighted some "radiation free options to get on the property ladder" for those fretting about the impending Armageddon.

Most affordable was said to be Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria – ironically close to the Sellafield nuclear processing plant and power station – which at the time boasted an average house price of  £112,279 and "a good chance of being out of the radiation zone".

Other areas deemed safe included Inverness (average £154,150), Anglesey (£161,262), Skegness (£163,991) and the far west of Cornwall (£214,215).

Brixworth, Northants (average £268,932), was cheerfully hailed as "nestled between four impact zones" but the agent warned that "with nowhere to go but into radiation your survival rate isn’t very high".

Trendy Kent resorts Margate (£216,134) and Folkestone (£236, 488) were also predicted to escape the Apocalypse.

The tongue-in-cheek guide was ridiculed after it was sent to journalists and emerged online, with one describing it as "the worst press release ever".
