    Just had an earth tremor where I live in Leicestershire for about ten seconds, house shaking and everything. Almost scary ! Thought it may have been the faggots and beans at work at first but it’s probably the Gracedieu fault. It happens every now and again but this was the shakiest one I can remember.

    north kent, even the cat didnt blink – nada here – though we’re at risk if a wave follows it

    Felt it here in Lincolnshire.

    I am pretty shaken by it actually.

    15 miles North of Lincoln apparently.

    you’ll all be fine, it was probably just a gordon brown and ken livingstone conspiracy to divert the news away from them

    i shall now try to sleep, with the vision in my head of hundreds of thousands of people in mid-north england sitting at their dining table completing insurance claim forms while simultaneously booking online holidays

    It is strangely surreal – chatting to Bulwark in the chatroom and all of a sudden he says: "What the hell was that? The place just moved!"

    It’s already newsworthy down here. And I sort of knew about it from the other end of the world. Weird.

    I’m in Leicestershire too, and I was quite scared! You just lie there wondering what the ****’s going on, but once it’s all subsided and you’re recovering from the shock, it dawns on you that it must have been an earthquake, not the end of the World after all.

    Vibrant here in the Vale of York too.

    Having been very windy for most of the day I first thought it was the TV aerial crashing onto the roof and dislodging a lot of slates

    Numerous lights came on along the street so it seems many were woken by it.

    Hanging pictures are a little askew

    The Dudley earthquake a few years ago was noticeable here as a faint rumble (like a heavy truck passing) but this one was much stronger.

    Dudley’s earthquake now has its own plaque in the town.

    I slept through the whole thing but I caught a glimpse of a BBC graphic that suggested the earthquake originated in the vicinity of Market Rasen. Should we take this as a sign that the National Hunt gods are angry?

    Count me in too; Southwell. Quite unnerving. Never experienced that before.

    I saw that as well.

    Did anybody see any gangs of “Flatties” jumping up and down a lot around the racecourse last night in diving boots? It’s palpably the work of anti-summer jumping insubordinates. Try that around Cartmel and you’ll have me to answer to!
