More British earthquakes

Following Saturday's earthquake in Kent, I have been reading Wikipedia.

The most powerful earthquake measured in Britain was the 1931 Dogger Bank quake. This reached 6.1 on the Richter scale.

The most destructive quake took place around Colchester in 1884. A lot of buildings were damaged and it appears that between three and five people died.
