Earthquake rocks Gatwick, Crawley and Horsham

The earthquake happened at 03:40 this morning.



BGS say the earthquake was a magnitude 3.7

Reports of the earthquake flooded into the British Geological Survey from people across Sussex and Surrey.

Reported at a magnitude of 3.7 it is one of the largest earthquakes the area has seen.

With reports saying it originated close to Southwater it was only 10 miles away from Gatwick Airport where some travellers reported feeling the buildings move.

One traveller said:

“It was quite violent, I thought it was the vibrations of a planes engines at first then realised that everything was shaking.”

One family in Crawley said they felt ‘a very strong tremor’ in the early hours while others reported headboards and furniture shifting around the room.

One man from Horley said:

“I had just got in from my late shift and was trying to watch tv when the room shook and I only managed to grab the tv from falling off the sideboard, it was that violent.”

Last year saw numerous earthquakes over just a couple of days leading people to ask what the real cause may be. Read that article here.
