Blimey.That’s a new life experience for me. We’ve just been hit by what seems to be Earth tremors circa 1am. The radio tells a similar tale across the south east of the UK including Bedfordshire and over a wider area including Leicestershire, Sheffield, Norfolk ,Birmingham and Manchester. We’re yet to hear where the epicentre was but all we experienced here was around 6 seconds of steady vibration like somebody was shaking the sofa I was sitting on.
An Interesting start to Wednesday anyway.
UPDATE:Thanks everyone for your continuing comments and experiences.As we now know this was felt over a wide area of the UK with the epicentre in Market Rasen in Lincolnshire with a magnitude of 5.3, the largest quake in the UK for 25 years. No serious damage reported I believe other than some structural incidences.
