    Earthquake? All over the UK?

    Anyone else just get that? At 12:57 there was an earthquake.

    ****ing awesome! (well, I know they are bad, but it's a first for me :p)

    Anyone?

    Just had a friend say that his girlfriend felt it miles away, so definitely not just a plane or anything.

    Hell, we've just had it here in Manchester - the most frightening thing I've ever felt tbh. The ground moving by itself isn't right... Just not on...

    Apparently they're not that uncommon here, the girlfriend's had a few at her house in the past few years.

    The rumour going round is that Venessa Felts just installed a trampoline in her back garden, could be true to be honest.

    South Yorkshire, the whole house shook. I've experienced one before (in Sheffield) and guessed it was a quake.
