Tar­bert

MYSTERY sur­rounds a big bang that was heard in Tar­bert on the night of Novem­ber 17.

The loud noise was heard right across the town and with many peo­ple think­ing it had hap­pened ei­ther in­side, or just out­side, their house.

The sud­den noise also ter­ri­fied lo­cal pets.

When some peo­ple went out­side to in­ves­ti­gate they found noth­ing amiss and no signs of dam­age.

A lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cer said he had heard it.

The po­lice were called but were at a loss as to what it was and said they wouldn’t be in­ves­ti­gat­ing any fur­ther.

Small earthquakes can some­times be heard as loud bangs

but the Bri­tish Ge­o­log­i­cal sur­vey con­firmed there had been no ac­tiv­ity recorded.

The sug­ges­tion that it was a sonic boom from a plane was quickly dis­missed, an­other the­ory was that it could be the Min­istry of De­fence (MOD) on ex­er­cises nearby.

BANG: A mys­te­ri­ous noise was heard in Tar­bert.
