Elite special forces combat divers ‘combing gas tankers for mines after reports of ISIS plot to blow up UK port’ | The Sun

ELITE special forces combat divers are combing colossal gas tankers for explosives to foil an ISIS plot to blow up a UK port, reports have claimed.

Brit spy agencies have allegedly received intelligence that the terror group is planning to target the vast ships ferrying highly explosive fuel from the Middle East.

The intelligence reports indicated jihadis could have got their hands on limpet mines, which can be attached to the hulls of ships, the Daily Mail reports.

If set off after a tanker filled with volatile liquid natural gas (LNG) docked in Britain, the resulting explosion could potentially destroy an entire port.
