Crooksbarn, Norton / MMI IV (Light shaking): Woke up by rattling doors and creaking furniture. Felt for only a few seconds.
Stockton on tees (5.3 km ENE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): The very shallow tremor awoke me just before 6am thought to myself i felt worse back in 2002 when i lived in Birmingham and the Dudley 4.8 hit when things really did shake about. This one was very mild.
Billingham / MMI IV (Light shaking): Woke us up, I thought my boyfriend had got the bedside table.
