As life returns back to normal, Britain has responded to today’s earthquake, (February 17), in the most British way possible – by making a joke about it.
A 4.7 magnitude quake hit the UK this afternoon and was felt from as far as Cornwall in the south-west to Blackpool in the north-east.
Survivors of the quake, which has reportedly taken no casualties, took to Twitter for some much needed #bantz:
