I work on the Tarran Estate and we heard it quite clearly. It shook the roof of the building and all the office staff came out to see what it was, thinking it came from our premises. It sounded to me like it came from out to sea towards the Meols area. No idea what it was and I can't find any info on the web.

Probably the bloody RAF playing war games. A double bang would indicate a sonic boom. Its probable that they dropped a bomb or something to practice doing it I expect.

Most days a jet goes tearing down the river for no apparent reason. It terrifies our dog, irritates everyone and as far as I can see serves no useful purpose whatsoever except to remind us of the vast expense of these things.

It's not as if Putin is very likely to establish a beachead in Tranmere with the intention of annexing the wirral, but why send a bloody expensive jet at 500mph to check that he hasn't anyway?

I can assure the RAF that we'll ring them if anyone attempts an invasion. No need for any jets until they do, thanks.

1) It goes along the Mersey because if anything went wrong over land the jet would crash into buildings rather than water

2) it's flying to the Irish sea to perform tests and training.

3) it stays lower than you may expect to save fuel climbing altitude and it could go a lot faster but again fuel and loud noise would have people complaining.

wow, it seems I accidentally resurrected this post after googling "loud bang Wirral". I was at work on Thursday 5th June and heard a massive bang as I walked across the factory to speak to a colleague. The bang sounded quite far away, possibly out to sea. It shook the roof of the factory and caused a load of dust to fall from the office ceiling. Some of the office staff came out including all of our top brass to see what was going on as they thought one of the shop floor staff had blown something up or injured themselves.
I spotted a right noisey b*****d jet flying over a while later, which I thought at first was a Harrier, but might have been a Tornado with its wings swept back flying away from me towards Liverpool.
However, I was always under the impression that a sonic boom is only audible from behind the jet and only at close range.
