An earthquake has been felt in parts of Cumbria.

Reports have come in from Keswick, Cockermouth, Whitehaven and Flimby from people who felt the earth move this morning.

The British Geological Survey's Keswick seismic station has recorded the small quake.

It happened a few miles south of Cockermouth and was officially recorded at a magnitude of 3.2.

A spokesman for the BGS said: "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.

"Today’s earthquake in Cumbria is the biggest in the area since 2010, which had a magnitude of 3.5 centred in Coniston."

People have taken to social media claiming their buildings shook.
