I live in Gaydon, around 20mins away. Heard this as well. Thought TV had dropped off the wall upstairs. Just called a friend in Marton (near Rugby)
who says there are tweets of it (he heard it also). Do you know what it was?
I really dont think it was an earthquake. First off i did not feel the ground move. Second it was a short sharp bang, that was followed by a low
rumbling sound. It sounded like someone jumped or fell over on the floor above, as a jet was hovering over the house. Only way I can describe it.
My sister has just called the police and apparently they don't know what is was either, you would have thought any planned explosion would be brought
to the attention of the emergency services. Anyway im sure theres a simple explaination, but i kind of hope it isnt!
Im in Lichfield (around 30m north) and didn't hear/feel anything, yet a few of my mates on facebook have been talking about it (from cov.), they said
it sounded like an explosion, i think it was just the one though.
I know it doesn't help much, but the noise isn't spreading north, but if it was felt towards oxfordshire, seems like the noise is traveling south.
What's going on people??, thought I would jump into this as well seems I live in Banbury South Oxfordshire, Apparently the boom was either a sonic
boom from a Jet breaking the sound barrier, I doubt it but its possiable...The other is that an explosion has occurred at Kineton Army Base. People on
my facebook have heard this as far as France.
WAS NOT AN EARTHQUAKE, I was laid in bed awake the dog across the street was barking and all of a sudden BOOM windows shake and my bed rocks(cause my
bed is on wheels). Felt nothing like an Earthquake though just something weird It's really hard to explain.
Also its on BBC NEWS, Breaking headling: The Ministry Of Defence is looking into reports of Loud Bangs in Oxfordshire.

No idea, doesn't sound like a controlled demolition though if its felt that far down south. The exploading meteor theory sounds most plausable, could
of came from a notherly direction and exploaded over coventry, causing the booms to travel south, because of the momentum and the direction it was
I'm from Coventry, and i was in toilet when this happent however i didn't hear or feel a thing, but everybody on facebook is rambling on about it,
now all the helicopters are out, i rekon it's a meteoroid.
