"What on earth was that?" My colleague and I were sat in her office on the top floor of a Victorian hospital building - part of Manchester's St Mary's Hospital for Women and Children.

The mystery was solved when I discovered later that we had felt the tremors of what was my first earthquake, albeit a minor one.
