Alarm clocks were not necessary for many people in the Great Yarmouth area this morning, with the “incredibly loud” sound of aircraft providing quite the shock for some.

The noise from above was reported to have taken place at around 7.50am, with some suggesting it was caused by two F15 fighter aircrafts flying over from RAF Lakenheath.

People from Great Yarmouth, Caister, Gorleston, Bradwell and beyond took to social media to share their shock.

Tony Pugh said: “I was taking my dog for his normal walk and the actual path really vibrated but the clouds were heavy and low and I looked up near the bowling area but could not see the plane.”

Shani Bessey said: “I went running out thinking it was going to crash into my house. Couldn’t see it.”

Keshley Smas said: “I’m in Lound, it was very loud and my mum was on the phone to me in Gorleston - we heard it at the same time.”

Charmaine Lamley said: “I heard it too. Felt like my house was shaking it was that bad.”

Jeanette Rollin-chase said: “Yes it was loud, I had the hoover on and that’s loud but could still hear it above that.”

Hannah Miriam said it “was incredibly loud over our house in Bradwell.”
