On 27th February 2008 at 00:56 GMT an earthquake was recorded by BGS with a magnitude of 5.2 (ML) on the Richter scale near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire. The same day a visit was made by the authors to the town of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire from where a significant proportion of the damage reports originated. The aim of the visit was in order to examine building damage and its relation, if any, with local geological conditions. The earthquake was widely reported in the British media and several TV crews filmed at Gainsborough and also at Keyworth on 27th February.
