"I felt it" reports:
Wirral UK / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I had not long gone to bed and was just drifting off to sleep when it felt like a gentle shaking. At first I thought it was one of the big trucks that pass by my flat but I couldn't hear anything and it lasted a few minutes. It was around 4am GMT. I have experienced minor earthquakes before and it felt very similar to that
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
