Did anyone else in Essex or possibly further out hear a massive bang about 20 minutes ago?

All my neighbours ran out in the street and someone I know who lives about 40 miles away heard it too confused

Heard it in Cambridge too - was definitely a sonic boom and confirmed by police.

No but something similar happened in the midlands a few days ago.

It's probably Trump losing the plot again 😄

Yep , heard it here in Cambridgeshire. Shock the house

pleasefeedthecat Tue 12-Jan-21 13:29:53

Or perhaps the air force are sending emergency aircraft to bomb French fishermen with baguettes 🙃

Ahh really?

That's good. We thought something had exploded.

Last time I saw that many people in the street, they were clapping the NHS 😂😂

I've just seen a news headline about this.... feel like I'm missing out a bit here in the midlands!

Looks like it might have been a jet heading south (over Cambs) from Coningsby

And over towards Ely too- thought I was going mad & sent the dog off on one

Heard in Borough of Broxbourne. Gosh, life's exciting.

We had one a couple of years ago on sports day.

We just assumed that the industrial plant a few miles away had blown up grin

Heard it in Kent too. All over the local Facebook page!

VienneseWhirligig Tue 12-Jan-21 13:48:18

We had one at the weekend where I live. I felt the house vibrate.

Heard it here in South Cambs - made me jump, I was just trimming my bush at the time blush

In case anyone is over-invested.

Heard it in North East London!

User24689 Tue 12-Jan-21 14:04:28

Typhoon FGR4 on its way to France apparently. According to an aircraft enthusiast on the local FB page!

WhatKatyDidNxt Tue 12-Jan-21 14:05:26

Enfield here. We were walking in the woods and wondered if we were the last people alive!

Purplethrow Tue 12-Jan-21 14:10:58

We’re in Essex and my dd has just asked me if I heard it , she was in the garden and said she thought a bomb had gone off. I didn’t hear a thing!

WildWaterSwimmer Tue 12-Jan-21 14:11:36

We heard it in South London. I had no idea what is was until I read this.

Another one here in NE London who heard it reporting in. I thought something really heavy had fallen on my roof and building shook.
