Did the earth move for you?

There has been a 4.1 magnitude earthquake in the Bristol Channel.

The tremor was felt here in Cornwall just after lunchtime on Thursday.

John in Liskeard says his whole sofa shook as he had a cup of coffee: "I was sat having a cup of coffee and checking my iPad when I heard this massive rumble and then everything started shaking violently. I thought at first it may be a sinkhole opening up after all the bad weather, but it seems it was an earthquake.

"I'm just waiting for the four men of the apocolypse to come over the hill. We've had the storms, rain, thunder, wind, snow, hail, power cuts ... and now this. I don't know what else can be thrown at us now!"
