A resident posted details about the incident on a social media forum and told how the sounds were heard over Chapeltown in the early hours of Sunday morning.

"I have no idea what it was but I'm thinking maybe it was skyquakes. Apparently there were in other parts of the UK last night.

"I'm wondering if anyone else heard it or would know what it was?"

This is not the first time something odd has been heard over the streets of the city.

What were described at the time as 'loud bangs' were heard in Woodhouse in February this year, while two blasts were also heard in Handsworth, Manor and the city centre in November 2016.
