Not that often, in the last month, 9.
In East Anglia we have had 5.5 etc and can feel any from the North Sea. Dogs and cats go mad though as do the birds. We also get tornadoes. In Norfolk we call them Henrys. They are not long lasting or wide, more like a pointy finger, but they can easily remove a roof or uproot an oaktree.

10 km is a program default set. They will most likely adjust that after review.

And just got the notification now. I think everything had gone to sleep.
To be serious, we have had a few more than usual over the last month.

From what I remember my old geology teacher told me years ago back in my school days there is a massive area of granite under the uk which shifts from time to time and causes a lot of our earthquakes.
I could be wrong thou

something wierd here? You sure it was an Earthquake, the witness on sky news (now) if you watch it heard the noise getting louder?Sounded like shannooks and had to look outside to see what was going on? surely you would feel it in your own house? Also has anyone seen the area? I thought that from the epicenter it ripples out?
So how is it that sky news were saying they think the epicenter was north sea, im north east and didnt feel a thing. However my dogs are acting wierd.
i think that this www.climatechangedispatch.com... is part of whats to blame here. The recent balloon crash in the uk, airliner crashes in russia, capsizing boats, submarines running aground, birds dropping out of the sky all way too much to be still labelled coincidences now.
You really have to watch and more importantly listen to every word on sky news... its ridiculous, and the weather on sky news too, look at the 2 perfect circles in the cloud that last the whole duration? wtf hows that work?
And then theres this little peach
All predictions that i believe are on coming true right now.
______beforeitsnews/story/337/497/UK_Guardian_has_20_predictions_for_the_next_25_years_from_different_experts.html

My opinion is that considering the quad meteor shower in the early hours and the fact that we will be in amongst it so to speak also throw in an eclipse and id say it feels to me that its going to be very eventful this week or 2.

could a quake be caused by a meteorite? silly question, also i believe theres going to be a massive avalanche too, so if you know anyone out there on the slopes........
This next freeze is going to cause chaos with water supply.
I believe that the Big Quake thats due
may be in labour.

For a country that is not normally a victim of quakes, there has certainly been an upturn in the frequency of late. I am sure that there a those that will be make theories concerning 'Assange/Wikileaks and US pressure on the UK'. I do not, myself, have a theory but it it interesting none the less.

There was one in Cumbria only a couple of weeks ago actually. We do get them in the UK, I've felt a couple myself over the years with one waking us up, but I didn't think we'd get 2 in a space of 2 weeks.

How many Natural Disasters did we have just the last 2 or 3 Weeks? I think we just need a Volcano and a Meteoroid/Asteroid and we got everything covered...

How far from the bbc was the epicenter?

Just wondering.

And here I was thinking that if TSHTF in 2012 at least Britain shouldn't be affected by quakes! Think its time I bought my bunker!

Yeah deffo a quake, it has just been reported on BBC news. Cumbria 2 weeks ago, now this. Weird. But, earthquakes are meant to increase in unusual places during the final days i understand. Lets see what happens.

These are nothing new. Some 200-300 are recorded every year in the UK. The largest tremor for some time was in February 2008. I was up at the time and it shook my house in Lincolnshire.
