A squad from the armed forces have set up a Brexit bunker under the Ministry of Defence as the government prepares for Britain to leave the European Union without a deal.
The squad will help direct some 3,500 military personnel at ‘very high readiness mode’, who have been put on standby to assist the government if required in the event of disruption triggered by a no-deal departure, Sky News reported.
From next Monday, troops will be ready to be deployed at a day’s notice, under something identified as ‘Operation Redfold’, which addresses several areas of government.
Control of overall preparation in the event of a no-deal will switch from the Cabinet Office to the government’s emergency committee Cobra.
The squads will cover areas such as health, transport and defence to divert resources or deploy manpower where necessary, reported Sky News.
Operation Redfold is the military aspect of no-deal contingency preparations.
A 200-strong crew of military personnel is ready to drive fuel tankers to petrol stations if necessary.
Military bases might also be utilized to park lorries and other vehicles backed up at ports if there are delays with customs checks at the borders.
The nuclear-proof bunker, called Pindar, is deep underground, beneath the MoD’s main building in Whitehall. It is the facility employed by the armed forces at a time of war or national emergency.
‘We are always willing to support wider government planning for any scenario, and we have committed to holding 3,500 troops at readiness to aid contingency plans,’ stated a MoD spokesman.
Military chiefs have currently spent at least £23m on stockpiling food, fuel, spare parts and ammunition at bases overseas in the event supply lines are interrupted.
