Cornwall's Mystery Boom
3:52pm 5th June 2013
Pirate FM has learnt that a mystery boom experienced across Cornwall could have been down to Royal Navy gunfire.
Dozens of people from the Lizard to Boscastle reported hearing the noise like thunder last night.
Now it has been confirmed that a ship was test firing eight miles off the coast.
Peter Tisdale from Longdowns near Penryn described it as sounding like the sonic boom from when Concorde used to fly over: "There were about ten or eleven bangs which sounded like sonic booms, a few of which actually made the ground tremble, you know, like a tremor.
"When they went off Land's End they used to go supersonic and you could hear the sonic boom. It's just like a big clap, you know, like a big bang; that's exactly what it sounded like."
