An earthquake with a magnitude of 3.2 has been recorded in Cumbria, with reports of homes shaking.
It was said to be "about 130 times smaller" than the earthquake which hit parts of South Wales and south-west England earlier this month.
The epicentre of today's earthquake, timed at 7.33am, was Mosser near Cockermouth, said the British Geological Survey (BGS).
The earthquake in Cumbria was magnitude 3.2, these occur in the UK about once or twice a year. It was about 130 times smaller than the event in South Wales last week.— British Geological Survey (@BritGeoSurvey) February 28, 2018

People took to Twitter in reaction to the earthquake.
So what I thought was stronger-than-usual teenage stomping round the house making our old floorboards and walls shake this morning was actually an earthquake! #earthquake #Cumbria #earthquakeincumbria— Marion Ward (@themarionward) February 28, 2018
Cumbria is a bit of a hot-spot for earthquakes in the UK. Very complex long-lived geological history means lots of faults in the crust that very occasionally may host a minor earthquake. Today's quake is the white star. https://t.co/lppoyQeuOh pic.twitter.com/empVONb4x8— Dr Stephen Hicks 🇪🇺 (@seismo_steve) February 28, 2018
