Earthquake near Hull and Grimsby 'felt 100km away'

A 3.9-magnitude earthquake centred in north-east Lincolnshire has reportedly been felt up to 60 miles (100km) away.

The British Geological Survey said it happened at 23:14 BST on Saturday with the epicentre in Grimsby at a depth of 11 miles.

It was felt mainly in Lincolnshire, and Hull, the BGS added.

It comes nearly a decade after the 5.2-magnitude earthquake in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, which was felt widely across England and Wales.

The largest earthquake in the UK this year took place in Cwmllynfell in south Wales on 17 February and registered a magnitude of 4.6.
