Lot of rumours on large bang that just happened.

Train fell off Bebbington bridge is rife.

Sounded like a large firework or perhaps electrical cable blown to me. Not heard any emergency sirens around.

People heard the sound from Birkenhead to Heswall to Ellesmere Port. So far heard that it was a train hitting the petrol station at The Oval and a chinese takeaway going boom in New Ferry. Wonder what it will be next.

Could have been a sonic boom from a military jet.

EDIT: It's the old Connexions building in New Ferry, seen pictures, its obliterated.

Heard it in Thingwall. The house shook. I hope no one has been injured.

Son said it was a row of shops.There again, not sure where he heard that, so it maybe a grapevine thing.

Heard in Neston too . Amazing the theories flying round ! Ive heard it was a dance studio, then a petrol station , then just a sonic boom -- Just hope no-one was inside the building.
