The Ministry of Defence is investigating reports of a loud bang that has been heard across a large part of England.

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service also said they were looking into what caused the mysterious noise heard at about 18:10 BST.

Reports have come from across the West Midlands, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire.

One Coventry resident said his house shook. "I thought somebody had thrown a brick through the window," he said.

People on Twitter claiming the ministry of defense say it was a quick reaction force Typhoon aircraft.!/BunkerAlpha/status/190505091567071233

So why was one little sonic boom heard across such a wide area?

"Reports have come from across the West Midlands, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire."

"There were reports of the noise being heard in Bath, Swindon, Coventry, Rugby and Oxford."
