A key feature of disruptions during VDE is toroidal variations in the measured plasma current
and first current vertical moments. These asymmetries can lead to significant sideways
forces as seen on JET. The observed asymmetries are a long lasting n=1 variation of the plasma current
(Ip) and its first current (vertical) moment (Miz) and have been interpreted as kink mode m/n=1/1.
