Reports that people in Norfolk felt effects of 3.9-magnitude earthquake which hit Grimsby

Chris Bell, a forecaster at University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest last night tweeted to ask if anybody had felt the natural disaster in Norfolk, but nobody has yet confirmed they did.

Such earthquakes were not uncommon in the United Kingdom, it said, happening every two years on average. To give it some context, the BGS said there are around 8,000 quakes annually bigger than the one that occurred in Grimsby last night.

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