An earthquake has shaken parts of Wales, with tremors felt for 100 miles.
The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the 3.7 magnitude quake was at 23:59 GMT on Friday and was 2.2 miles (3.6 km) 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.
Gwent Police said it received multiple calls overnight but it was “business as usual” for the force.
“My whole bed shook,” she tweeted. Others described it as a “scary” experience.
Brian Baptie, BGS head of seismology, said it was the largest earthquake in south Wales since a 4.6 magnitude quake about 25 miles (40km) west, near Swansea, in February 2018.
He added that, on average, Britain only gets about one earthquake with a magnitude of 3.7 or greater each year.
The largest earthquake ever recorded in the UK was in the North Sea on 7 June 1931, with a magnitude of 6.1.
The epicentre was in the Dogger Bank area, 75 miles (120km) north-east of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.
Wales’ most powerful quake was on the Llyn Peninsula, Gwynedd, in 1984 – measuring 5.4, it began at a depth of more than 12 miles (20km).
The BGS said smaller quakes were not unusual in Wales, with 70 measuring more than 3.5 between 1727 and 1984.
In Ebbw Vale shoppers said they had been left shaken and stirred.
Gerald Davies called the moment “strange”, adding: “It freaked me out a bit but I didn’t realize it was an earthquake until this morning when I heard people taking about it on the buses.
“We’re not used to feeling earthquakes here.”
Alison Stephens said: “I live in a house that house that has a cellar underneath and I thought something in the cellar had collapsed.
“But my daughter and husband were in the living room and went, ‘oh my god did you hear that?’
She said it was “quite a rumble”.
Caroline Davies thought nothing of it until people started messaging on Saturday.
“My husband was sat on one sofa and I was sat on the other… and it just wobbled,” she said.
Listeners told BBC Radio Wales Breakfast that they felt the “earth shake” in Ebbw Vale, which brought people out of their homes and into the streets.
Robert Griffiths, from Rhiwbina, Cardiff, said he had just sat down to watch TV after a night out when “all of a sudden the whole house shook”.
“The ceiling creaked, we immediately turned the television off and thought ‘what on Earth was that?’
“It was kind of like 20 trucks had driven in front of the house so it was most unusual and quite strange.”
Stephanie Palfrey from Blackrock, near Abergavenny, said she “thought the mountain right behind the house was sliding down”.
“Other villagers came out of their homes to see what the noise was,” she said.
“We live in an old cottage. You could hear it rattling. It was quite something.”
