UK's biggest tremor no great shakes on the Isle of Wight

Thursday, February 20, 2014 - 16:34

AN earthquake in the south west today (Thursday) — the biggest in the UK for six years, measuring 4.1 on the Richter Scale — registered only a small spike on the Isle of Wight.
A Carisbrooke Castle Museum spokesman confirmed the tremor in the Bristol Channel would have been felt on the Isle of Wight, but said seismographic equipment showed its local effect was "far less significant" than the Japanese earthquake, which led to the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011.
