A Yorkshire village could have been hit by 12 atomic bombs in a secret Cold War plan to test Britain's nuclear capability, it has emerged. The coastal settlement of Skipsea in what is now the East Riding of Yorkshire was reportedly discussed as the UK developed its nuclear weapons in the 1950s.

Defence chiefs are claimed to have built a secret bunker and bought land large enough for 'a dozen detonations over a period of several years', which could have spread a nuclear fallout for miles across the north of England.
The plan was dropped when Australia granted permission to detonate nuclear weapons in the desert, the Daily Express reported.
