UK Emergency Alert on Sunday 23 April 2023 at 3pm

A nationwide test of the UK’s emergency alert service will take place at 3pm on Sunday 23 April.

Messages will pop up on mobile phones across the country, along with a sound and vibration that will stop automatically after 10 seconds.

People will just need to tap “OK” or swipe away the notification like any other, with no further action required.

The alert will make a sound even if a person’s phone is switched on to silent.

It is the first nationwide trial of the service, following pilots in East Suffolk and Reading.
