Mystery as 'explosions' and 'loud bangs' are heard across UK from London to Glasgow
Several loud 'mystery bangs' that shook windows baffled people across the country on Saturday night.

Dozens of Twitter uses from London to Glasgow claimed to have heard the strange noises, which sounded like fireworks or loud aircraft and occurred between 10pm and 10.30pm.

Some suggested it sounded like 'aircraft sonic booms' and pointed to Russian airships that were performing 'routine military exercises' while passing through the English Channel.

But the Ministry of Defence denied any knowledge of jets being scrambled and Met Police said the only possible explanation they were aware of was a firework display in Croydon.

However others were reporting to have heard bangs around the same time over 100 miles away.

Generally I try to be one person, those split personalities are way to confusing...

And it was a joke, as much as sea lion was a joke.. no amount of wishing would have made that work without turning the Germany army into a real amphibious maritime force. As Napoleon put it, that was another case of the elephant fighting the whale..

I think the mistake the elephant made was thinking the whale had it's back to the sea and thus no escape..

Dunkirk was a repeat of Corunna... and until the retreat at Dunkirk, Corunna was held in a similar high/low regard, but as much it was an escape from the jaws of death it was also a shameful disaster, sending to an expeditionary force that was not up to the task

I guess a British Army won't be able to escape like that a 3rd time ;) or maybe next time we won't send an expeditionary force that was not large enough to complete the job..

Before there are any strange accusations...i am truly a spectator there...no meddling...i find some characters there very disagreeable and vice versa...clearly they have to sort out their differences themselves.

I only have to take the dog for a walk for 10 mins to see hill forts/castles/bunkers stretching from now back 3,000 years... not really a change is it...

For the record, I live on the Southdowns.. hence an avid interest in Sealion as the main landing spots/paratroop drops are in dog walking distance..

This year is the 750th Anniversary of a major battle here, the Battle of Lewes, which took the crown from the Kings head, took foreign influence from the governance of this land and the start of the Parliament we know today.. Even the King of the Germans was captured at that battle ;)

Although on that last part I suspect those who took part in Lewes might look at the Parliament we have today and cast their eyes to the sky..
