    The bellicose relationship between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, has US states looking to Cold War civil defence plans, as fears of war between the two increase.

    In the wake of North Korea's latest missile test, Hawaii has tested its nuclear warning sirens.
