Fighter jet sonic boom ‘rocks the earth’ in Suffolk

Shockwaves were sent through Suffolk when a sonic boom shook the earth – as RAF fighter jets scrambled to transport a Ryanair plane to Stansted Airport following a security alert on board.

I put together everything we knew so far, created this Twitter moment, and put together a video explaining what a sonic boom was for our readers.

I also put a call out for reader pictures and video, which resulted in the clip below.
