Damage Bill Runs Into Millions As Biggest Earthquake In 25 Years Rocks Britain

Recommended Posts

England has been rocked by the biggest earthquake to hit the country in 25 years - and the cost of damage to homes and properties is expected to be a staggering £10million.

The quake, measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale, hit at 1am this morning and the tremors were strong enough to wake even deep sleepers.

David Bates narrowly escaped death when a chimney smashed through the roof of his terraced home and crashed into his bedroom as he watched TV in bed.

He was woken in his attic bedroom, by falling masonry as the brick chimney stack was dislodged by the force of the ten second shaking.

I'm just surprised that they haven't blamed it on under age immigrant binge drinking yoof.

Don't forget, they described last years floods as a "humanitarian disaster", so this kind of over reaction is to be expected.

Californians don't even get out of bed for anything less than 7.0 :lol:

Now most of the UK is in an earthquake risk zone will it put peoples house insurance up or stop them getting insurance altogether !! ;)

Are we getting more earthquakes? Don't remember any as a kid and yet two biggish ones in the last eight years which I've experienced (not counting the one in Kent).
