Yesterday Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe also warned North Korea could now attack Europe.
Standing alongside Theresa May, Shinzo Abe said North Korea “has become a global threat” with its missile tests.
He said: “North Korea, they’ve conducted two missile launch, of the class of intercontinental ballistic missile.
“That threat is felt not only by our country or Asia alone, it has become a global threat including Europe.
North Korea has infuriated their Western rivals with repeated missile tests and military drills
“In other words, North Korea will launch ICBMs and the range will include almost the entire region of Europe – it has become a global threat.”
It comes after North Korea sent a missile soaring over Japan - a highly-provocative act which caused panic for people on the ground below.
Terrified civilians were woken by emergency text alerts which said: "Missile passing. Missile passing.
“A short time ago, a missile apparently passed above this area. If you find suspicious objects, please don’t go near them and immediately call police or firefighters. Please take cover in secure buildings or underground."
