A girl from Essex has marked herself as ‘Safe’ on Facebook more than 6,000 miles away from a disaster somewhere. 

Michelle Garridge told our Chief Reporter that her friends and family would be ‘worried sick,’ even though she has never actually left the limits of Basildon.

She added, ‘You never know, do you?’

’My friend’s mum lives in Tasmania, and she posted last week to say that her dog had gone missing.’

’I shared it straight away just in case it had managed to jump on two Qantas flights and finished up in the UK.’

’You never know, do you?’
