Earthquake: Brynmawr, Cardiff and valleys feel tremors

An earthquake has shaken parts of Wales, with tremors felt for 100 miles.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the 3.7 magnitude quake happened at 23:59 GMT on Friday and was 1.8 miles (3km) under the Earth's surface.

The epicentre was north of Brynmawr, Blaenau Gwent, and west of Crickhowell, Powys, but people on Twitter reported feeling it as far away as Birmingham.
