Liskeard earthquake was Cornwall's biggest in years, say experts

Yesterday's earthquake which struck South East Cornwall in the early hours of the morning was the largest in the area since February 4 2011, experts have revealed.

The 2.3 magnitude earthquake struck seven kilometres north-west of Liskeard, and scores of people living nearby took to social media claiming to have heard noises and felt tremors.
