"I think Cuadrilla said the last quake would have felt like dropping shopping on the floor. This one definitely felt a lot bigger than that, nearly shook my deodorant off the bedside table! It was at least dropping some large furniture this time."

"There has been another quake/tremor this morning again at 8:35 ish just now. Our house was shaking again my wife said as I was walking my dog around the block and I even felt the footpath move under my feet."
Damian Rowe - Email

"Building shook for at least 5 seconds, enough to wake and scare people. Not sure what Cuadrilla have in their bags of shopping."
Martin Jones @MartMUFC - Twitter

"Another one! Felt miles away in two separate Blackpool areas by family members this morning. Enough is enough, @CuadrillaUK! This practice is banned elsewhere & wasn't wanted by locals."

"The cuadrilla folk said that previous tremors were nothing more than what you would feel if a bag of shopping was dropped on the floor.
Well today’s bag of shopping must have been dropped at my door by a crane."

"#Tremor in #Blackool, I’m around 6-7 miles from the site."
