Queen To Be Evacuated In Case of No-Deal Brexit Riots: Times

(Bloomberg) --

Emergency proposals to rescue the royal family during the Cold War have been "repurposed" in recent weeks in preparation for a possibility of no-deal Brexit riots, The Sunday Times reports, citing an unidentified cabinet office source.

The plans were originally intended for an event of a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union during the Cold War, the paper said. Plans would see the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh moved out of London to an unidentified location.
