Sonic Boom: People Woken by Loud Noise Which 'Shook Houses'
In the News
A loud sonic boom caused by RAF planes has woken people across north London and shaken houses.
People tweeted that a loud "explosion" had woken them up at around 04:20 GMT - with houses shaking and reports of police sirens straight after.
It is believed that loud noise was two RAF Typhoons launched from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire to an unresponsive aircraft.
I read this with interest because living in Lincolnshire we hear these all the time, it is commonplace.
I also thought that Londoners heard regular planes all the time but do appreciate that the Typhoons are considerably louder.
