Tea-loving Turkish gentlemen react to 6.5-magnitude earthquake

Two men in a shop in the western Turkish province of Çanakkale refused to leave their tea behind, despite being shaken by a 6.5-magnitude earthquake on Saturday, which caused damage and minor injuries in several areas.

Security camera footage shows the moments inside and outside of a Çanakkale shop. Turkey is the world leader in the list of countries by tea consumption per capita. Each Turk drinks an average of 7.52 kg of tea a year.

Terrorism in NI seems to have degraded into inconvenience.
