Did anybody else hear a large bang at about 06.50 this morning.
I don't think it was thunder.

If it was Tatey I would expect his clapper may be in need of some medical attention .

Yes - heard this in Tranmere near St Caths Hospital - sounded quite distant - thought there may have been a traffic incident - be interesting to identify this confused

Yep I heard it too. Assumed it was something going on at the docks over in Seaforth. Be interesting to find out.

Well, I hope this doesn't seem too far fetched but - is it possible for sound waves to reverberate off the atmosphere...

A massive explosion shook Kabul on Monday as fighting between Taliban militants and security forces raged in the centre of the Afghan capital, witnesses said. Two armed insurgents were killed by Afghan security forces in the battle, NATO said in a statement.The explosion at 11.20 am (0650 GMT) came amid a wave of gun and bomb attacks and clashes between Taliban-linked militants and security forces that has closed the centre of the city.

I know they detonated at the scrap merchants in Seaforth docks, usually early in the morning. Could be this?
