Residents of Bedfordshire suffered a second earthquake in a week.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said it had received reports from people in Leighton Buzzard who felt the earthquake Sunday night.

Residents of the area felt a strong 3.5 earthquake on September 8th.

BGS said the last tremor was recorded at 11.20 pm, with a magnitude of 2.1.

She tweeted: “There were few reports from members of the public indicating that they felt this earthquake, which is located in the same area as the September 8, 3.5 earthquake.

One report describes that it “felt slower and less severe than the previous tremor.”

Members of the public reported that the vibrations were “dramatic” during the previous earthquake, which compared the effect of the BGS to a “large explosion”.

Usha Chapman, from Lawton, said, “I was on a video call with my mom when I felt a sideways push. The door shook and the wall-mounted TV shook too.

“It lasted for five seconds.”

BGS head of seismology, Dr Brian Baptie, told the BBC that the UK experiences only one earthquake every year of this size, but it is rarely in the Bedfordshire area.

He said, “Leighton Buzzard is not an area known to have earthquakes in the past.

There were a few nearby places historically. There was a 3 degree pot near Oxford in 1986, then you have to go back to the 18th century to look at Oxford in 1764 for another event of this magnitude.

“Most of the earthquake areas in the United Kingdom lie a little to the north, west, or down in the Dover Strait area.”

Bedfordshire Police said there were no reports of injuries.

The force said in a tweet: “Our control room is currently witnessing a large number of calls due to the earthquake felt by people across the province. We have not currently received any reports of any injuries or major structural damage.”

Someone in Aylesbury wrote online that their house shook “as if a car hit it.”

Another, from Dacorum in Hertfordshire, said: “A quick, quiet, short boom like an explosion.”
