A woman hoping to survive the apocalypse has built a bunker in her home and stocked up enough supplies to last her a quarter of a century.
Rowan MacKenzie, 38, started to stock her cupboards 11 years ago to prepare herself for the end times.
She began purchasing large quantities of food items like beans and studied how to preserve them for long periods, The Mirror reported – and also has an arsenal of weapons on standby too.
Rowan made the decision to build a bunker in her basement as her apocalypse preparations developed.
The US based doomsday hoarder spent a whopping £7,650 on the bunker and filled it with enough supplies to last her for 25 years.
She said: “The number one must for any bunker is defence.
“You need to protect yourself, especially in a ‘dog eat dog’ situation. It’s kill or be killed and you need the best possible chance of survival."
She believes she will be able to use her guns to hunt for food if meat starts to become scarce.
She added: “I prep for now, as you never know day-to-day what might happen.
“I believe everyone should be to some degree prepared, as food is necessary for life and everyone should have extra for an emergency.

“The day is upon us where being prepared is a blessing, as food will disappear and become overpriced if there’s a war. We will all feel the side effects eventually."
Rowan estimates that she's spent over £15,000 preparing for the apocalypse.
The woman claims that she has a lot of people "attack" her for disagreeing with how she lives her life.
She said: “Knowledge is power and I love to help people – it’s what I do.
“I feel like I’ve made myself very vulnerable but I believe it’s for a good cause.
“My friends and family think I’m crazy, but I always tell them that when the time comes, they won’t be calling me crazy then.

“My biggest advice is: don’t panic. Breathe, make a list and execute. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and try to panic-buy supplies, but I don’t and will never encourage this.
“Just buy a few extra items each time you shop and eventually, you will see progress.
“There is no better feeling than knowing you are ready for anything that could happen and having your family protected.
“The main thing is to remain calm and have a plan.”
