A small earthquake has been recorded in parts of Herefordshire and the Worcestershire border area this morning.

The earthquake, that registered 1.2 on the Richter scale, had an epicentre in the Bringsty area of the county.

It occurred at approximately 6.50am at a depth of 5 kilometres.

The British Geological Survey confirmed the news this morning. 

It follows a more obvious earth tremor that shook parts of South Wales and Herefordshire on Friday evening when a 3.7 magnitude earthquake hit. The epicentre of this earthquake was located in the Crickhowell area of South Wales.

It was felt from Swansea, all the way across to Bristol and the West Midlands.
