Yeah, m2.2 is quite common for the UK.
There are literally hundreds of old fault lines running all over the country, and occasionally they do slip.
I imagine when fracking becomes the norm, we can expect to feel more of them, and in larger magnitude, doesn't help with all the mine shafts all over
the place that are prone to collapsing.
North of England can sometimes see m3+ even m4+, there was one not so long back not far from me, centred under one of the lakes.
It's surprising we don't feel them more often given how many lines there is......I was surprised how many of the fells here in Cumbria are actually
extinct volcanoes, including Scafell Pike just 18 miles from me....it's a super volcano! Yellowstone park style! Thank goodness it snuffed it a long
