image for Householders clear up after Earthquake
Tea was spilt

After most of England was hit by the biggest earthquake since the 1990 Barnsley "Big One" in the early hours of this morning, householders near the epicentre face the daunting task of clearing up.

Our reporter in Hull stated that people just came out on to the street and were wandering around aimlessly, having been "slightly shaken" in their beds. One resident of the Brandsholme estate claimed his tea was spilt and if it hadn't been for the swift action of his wife the table could have been permanently marked.

Other areas were hit more badly with residents in Market Rasen being woken up by the sound of rattling windows, "It was like the wind was blowing quite hard" stated Derek Lambeth, Parish Councillor.

The country is waiting with baited breath to see if the aftershocks will cause any further damage.
