    Was abruptly woken up by a very loud bang / explosion noise at roughly 4am.

    Apart from my dog, I was the only one to hear the noise in my household so went back to bed thinking I was losing the plot. That or the few glasses of wine I had the night before were playing with my mind.

    Turns out I wasn’t actually losing it, and a large number of people on Twitter were questioning this weird morning tremble and it seems to be the result of a sonic boom from a fighter Jet responding to an unknown aircraft.

    What’s even more weird is some people could hear it as far as Essex, Cambridge and in some reports Wales, yet my family didn’t hear the damn thing, even though it felt as if a nuclear bomb had hit nearby.

    Anyone else in Watford hear it?

    Yeah I did. I thought it was a car bomb or something that bad going off. Pretty scary, this soon after the London Bridge incident would
    of been awful it if was something else. Went into the garden to check if anything had moved/broken only to find the cat wanting to come
    in.

    Didn't hear a thing...mind you a cannon could fired from my bedroom and I'd sleep through it.

    Same thing happened when the petrol depot (or whatever it was) exploded in Hemel, my girlfriend heard it in Northolt but I didn't.

    UFO's over London again, nothing to worry about, not for us anyway.
