Report: UK govt tests blackout emergency plans

The British government has been testing its emergency plans in case of blackouts prompted by energy shortages during winter, the Guardian said in its report published on Tuesday.

Documents marked as "official sensitive" warned of possible scenarios where transport could be disrupted for a week and discussed priorities under which people would receive basic supplies such as food and water.

The government's latest program comes amid spiking electricity prices across the United Kingdom as well as energy deficits prompted by the war in Ukraine.
