They could have been on shaky ground if they had ignored.
At least it will be mild!

We've had stronger, but not for a while.

I was driving to Tesco when the Folkestone quake hit (mag. 4.3) - and even though I was in the car, and not that close to the centre, I felt it... as the car suddenly moved a couple of inches to the side as I was going along! A weird sensation.

EDIT: 4.3 was enough to cause power cuts and structural damage to dozens of houses in Folkestone.

The 4.8 M would not be particularly unusual for North Wales, Kent, Western Scotland, plus Comrie area, and even parts of North Sea. The strongest recorded earthquake in the UK so far to date was 6.1 M over Dogger Bank on 7 June 1931.
