An earthquake has hit west Cornwall, with residents reporting hearing a loud bang and feeling their homes shake.
The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the quake, measuring 2.2 on the magnitude scale, happened about three miles (5km) south-west of Falmouth.
Residents in the Helston area reported feeling the quake at about 17:00 BST. No structural damage has been reported.
There are about 15 events of this size or greater a year in the UK, the BGS said.
It said: “A small number of reports have been received from the immediate area by members of the public. One described ‘Loud bang from beneath (I was sat on sofa). Windows shook’.”
