People living near Bodmin have felt the earth move.

It is after a 2.2 magnitude quake in the early hours of Sunday.

People in Liskeard, St Austell, Padstow, Camborne, Bocastle, Wadebridge and Callington reported feeling it too.

It struck at about 2.40am on Sunday morning. It caused damage to three properties but nobody was hurt.

Listeners to Pirate FM reported it rattling windows and furniture.

Cathy from Padstow said, "My husband got up this morning and said that he had a awful nightmare last night, that our room was shaking! We have read since about the earthquake."
