An earthquake measuring 3.3 magnitude on the Richter scale has sent shockwaves through southern England.
According to the British Geological Survey (BGS) quake maps, the epicentre was in 3km northwest of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, and recorded at a depth of 10km.
It was felt at around 9.45am and had an epicentre 6.2 miles deep.
The BGS wrote on its Twitter account: ‘We are getting reports of an earthquake in the Bedfordshire area. We are currently investigating this event and will post again shortly with an update.’
The size of the tremor was initially thought to be larger but has since been downgraded to 3.3 magnitude from initial reports it was a 3.9.
