KENT residents have said they may never trust the earth again after being hit by a 4.2 magnitude earthquake.
The quake shook homes and left people in the county feeling hurt, betrayed and asking ‘Why?’
Joanna Kramer of Hythe said: “I mean it’s been me and the earth since like forever. I grew up on it, I got married on it and had my first child on it, and now this.
“Just without warning at 3am, and then as soon as it happened it’s acting like it was no big deal and ‘You knew I did this sometimes,’ while I’m sitting up in bed, no chance of getting back to sleep.
“I don’t know if I’ll stay. I might have to move into the sea.”
Joseph Turner of Ramsgate agreed: “If this had happened in Leeds or Birmingham I could understand, but everyone round here voted Conservative. Everyone.
“I’ve spent all morning beating my fists on the ground and weeping, but it hasn’t even felt it. I might have to start fracking.”
Environment minister Liz Truss said: “Sometimes bad things happen to good counties.”
