David James, who lives in Aylesbury Town Centre rang the Herald and said: "I couldn't believe it was happening!

"I was lying in bed with a coffee and the bed started shaking and I dropped the coffee!

"I thought I was imagining things. I can't believe it's just happened. I'd dread to think what would have happened if it was any stronger. Absolutely terrifying prospect."

"My top floor flat shaking, walls & roof creaking, & strange ripples all over water on small lake with carp jumping!"
