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.February 27, 2008 at 01:52 #146731
north kent, even the cat didnt blink – nada here – though we’re at risk if a wave follows itFebruary 27, 2008 at 01:56 #146732Gazs Way De SolzenMember

Felt it here in Lincolnshire.
I am pretty shaken by it actually.
15 miles North of Lincoln apparently.February 27, 2008 at 02:06 #146733moehatParticipant

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 holidaysFebruary 27, 2008 at 04:11 #146736MDeeringMember

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.February 27, 2008 at 06:47 #146738BurroughhillParticipant

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.February 27, 2008 at 08:53 #146750DroneParticipant

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.February 27, 2008 at 08:59 #146754Andrew HughesMember

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?February 27, 2008 at 09:43 #146768Maxilon 5Member

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!
