Just seen it in Bournemouth, moving like shit off a shovel.

ISStracker.com has all the details. Should be two more passes tonight (10pm and 11.35) I think.

You cant miss it if you're looking roughly in the right direction (use the site above).

Yeah got my GMT and stuff messed up. 10.34 is the next one. Will basically be right above you, and visible for about 80 seconds.

According to the nerds I've been conversing with, yup (depending on your exact location anyway). Think its lower the further north you are. North of London and you'll need to look south as I understand it.

Actually I'm in Leeds so I guess it'll be pretty much 45 degrees from the horizon.

That was awesome, passed directly overhead (disappeared directly above due to earths shadow).

ISSTracker makes it look theres another one in 90 minutes, not sure if it'll be visible due to sunlight etc though.
