About half an hour ago the whole house shook! I instantly assumed this was an earthquake and was correct. The earthquake has been felt across the whole of the UK. At first i thought the house was crumbling as thats how it sounded and the whole room shook loudly and violently. Currently watching Sky news for update on the event.
