Bloody hell! We just had an earthquake! Strong one too - we're talking creaking walls!

Arts Tower still standing though.

That's only the second one in my entire life I've felt in the UK...

Update: BBC News

I'm on the fourth floor of the IC with Roni. Thanks to my in-Japan training, my first thought was: "Earthquake! Wait, earthquakes don't happen in the UK, so... The building's falling down!" I'm pretty glad it was the earthquake.

So did I! I can jus see the top of it from where I live, and I actually thought that maybe it was the Arts Tower falling down that had caused the ground to shake!

Pete, Amelia, the two Anons (not the other Anon I assume... surely he's not in the UK) -

Thanks for your comments. Seems like there was no damage, except to a man's leg when a chimney fell on him.

Pete - nice photos :-)
