Fracking temporarily suspended for third time as micro quakes are triggered. I expect the government to relax the regulations in the next few days on the intensity of quake which requires fracking to stop.

a 0.8 quake is about the same as a car passing 100m away (my guess). Previously a 4.0 (?) quake was triggered, which is about a heavy truck at 10 metres (again, my guess)

These small quakes seem like the least significant reason to halt fracking, but I can think of far more important reasons that this government runs rough-shod over.

We had a 4 quake in Leicestershire about 8 years ago and there was the odd bit of building damage - tiles etc. I was lying down at the time and the bed definitely shook [not due to my efforts!]

OK 16 years ago:

I think there's been one since: Market Weighton, 2007 or 8 or 9, can't remember. It was in the middle of the night - the evening had been windy but the night was still. The quake woke me, I thought it was wind buffeting our house (the bedroom faces west), till I realised how quiet it was.

I felt a quake in Worcestershire back in the 1980s. About 6am, it woke me because things were rattling on the shelves.
