Elvis pic­tures all shook up but no dam­age

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - EARTHQUAKE - THE VICTIMS -

A DED­I­CATED Elvis fan was left shaken up by the tremor.

El­iz­a­beth El­liott of Can­ter­bury Close, just off Can­ter­bury Road, took so­lace in the fact that her lim­ited edi­tion pic­tures of the King hang­ing on the walls weren’t dam­aged in the quake.

Mrs El­liott said: “I was in the kitchen when sud­denly the whole house re­ally shook. I thought ‘What the hell was that?’

“I ran up­stairs, think­ing some­thing had fallen off the walls.

“The kids rushed out, say­ing ‘What’s go­ing on mum?’ We came out­side.”

The mother-of-three’s home sus­tained only a few cracks. She said: “It was quite an ex­pe­ri­ence – af­ter all, you don’t ex­pect your whole house to shake. I’m an Elvis fan and I’m just pleased my pic­tures were not bro­ken.”

Can­ter­bury Road res­i­dents El­iz­a­beth and Ian El­liott forced out­side af­ter the quake, with neigh­bours Si­mone Bent­ley and An­to­nio DaSales
