    Yesterday morning I popped to the shop, and when I came back and got out the car, I could hear an air raid siren :shock: It seemed like it was a few miles away, but I could definitely hear it. I called OH out and he could hear it too. Ive googled and cant find anything about it, so im intrigued! Anyone hear it too or know what it was???

    They sound one by us about once a year. I think they would still use it as some sort of earl;y warning sysem if they needed to. Maybe in the event of a terrorist attack. I suspect you live in a rural area as I do and it's difficult to get word round uickly. Was there anything on the news??

    I live in a very rural area right on the edge of the valleys, so yeah that could explain it, atleast I know what to listen out for now, but how do you know when its a test or for real :shock:

    It might have been a flood warning siren. It's just said on our local news they are using them to warn of flooding.
