"You've all been emailing in about the noise it made, and I'd be interested if anyone had recorded the noise - I know it's unlikely but if anyone happened to be videoing something and happened to record the sound."
"What would people be doing at 1am that they would want to video?"
"If you just send in the audio that will be fine, we don't need the video."

According to Radio 4 the epicentre was Market Rasen (Lincolnshire, about 50 miles south of Hull--which is my birth town--and the same distance east from Nottingham, which is where I now live). Richter 5.2 - bigger than the last one, about 8 years ago.
Sounded like a train running right outside the house (~2 secs) then doubled in intensity for ~half a second, then abruptly finished. Caused my LCD monitor to rock.
No big deal. Unless you were the guy whose chimney stack fell through his roof. And killed him.
"De Aston students Kirsty Silson, Thea Garrett and Tom Fincham said it was the 'most exciting thing that's happened to us'!", which pretty much sums up the County.
