Britain to be hit by major earthquake as new 'super deep' fault lines found

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Scientists have warned that the UK could be hit by a catastrophic earthquake following last year’s 3.8-magnitude tremor in the Midlands.

New research has discovered ‘fault lines’ much deeper than the San Andreas Fault, which causes major earthquakes in California, the Daily Mirror reports.

Experts say the earthquakes that could hit would put tens of thousands of lives at risk.

London would be most affected, along with Kent and the Home Counties, Essex, and Scotland.

Glenn Ford, a seismologist at the British Geological Survey (BGS), told the Daily Express that last year’s tremor in Rutland “was very small compared to the quakes we see in areas of high seismic activity such as Greece.”

He added: “We do have a major plate tectonic boundary between the Eurasian plate and the African plate.

“There is a possibility one of that size can hit the mainland UK.”
