Goodness, There’s just been an earthquake. All the doors shook and the walls shimmered. This is a relatively unusual event for the West Midlands, although not unprecedented.
UPDATE: 5.3 in Lincolnshire
UPDATE 2: Post edited for an inexplicable attack of Famous Five speech patterns. I can confirm that Timmy the dog was not harmed in the earthquake, and neither did he give warning of the impending seismic activity.
UPDATE 3: Best comment at The Guardian care of Nick Bannister: “Some jiffy bags were dislodged from some high shelving in our office. I can only thank God that no one was standing underneath at the time.”
