yes, my phone said 3.49 (or was it 4.49?) when they went off, i could see them from bedroom window, rockets, must have been one big firework/ box thing. why in the morning on a sunday/ monday? made me wide awake, feeling very tired today.... hope they let us sleep thru tonight!

thanks - were they coming from the direction behind jamaica road? it sounded in that direction - i recall hearing them before about a year ago - again very very early in the morning.

Could it have been anything to do with the large (cruise?) boat that arrived at Tower Bridge?

unsure, but it wasn't coming from the water/ river, it was from someone's house/ garden
