A 4.2 magnitude earthquake has been recorded in Wales, with the epicentre near Swansea.
The British Geological Survey have provided comment to the press that events of this magnitude happen every two to three years in the UK.
More than 1,000 reports were reported to EMSC, an independent scientific organisation based in Paris, with it being felt from Cornwall all the way up to Liverpool.
Dyfed-Powys Police issued a statement saying they are receiving an “extremely high call volume” reporting some sort of earth tremor in the area. The force said it is receiving reports from across the whole of Wales but reassured people that it was nothing to worry about.
