A 3.9-magnitude earthquake hit Lincolnshire last night (Saturday)

It was centred in Grimsby, but its effects were felt up to 60 miles away, with tremors felt as far south as Peterborough and as far west as Shropshire.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said it happened at 11.14pm.

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