OK so for those who haven't heard recently there have been drills across the UK to test how the emergency services would prepare for an earthquake. That's right an earthquake. Perhaps this is the UK government freaking out as a result of the Christchurch quake, which took place in an area far from any major fault lines. Or maybe they are using the earthquake as a guise to prepare in secret for something much more sinister.
Why Merseyside though?...
So you might be thinking that this is just a standard drill they happen all the time.

Possible reason for there being middle eastern officials on scene, perhaps to learn a thing or two?
