17 earthquakes at Warsop, Nottinghamshire

According to the BGS (Link) between the 19 and 27th November there were 19 earthquakes reported in the UK of which 17 were in the parish of Warsop Nottinghamshire – two even being large enough to have been felt!!!
All were at a depth of 5km and they appear to be on a fault line running as shown below. The last “big” quake is indicated as being at the red pointer marker.
The quakes are too deep to be coal mines collapsing. A series of quakes like this could indicate an active fault which may have ceased – or we may be about to see a bigger quake. So, tie down the crockery if you live near Worksop

    In America, earthquakes like this would be used as evidence of the dangers of fracking.
