Comments have been coming in to BBC Wales from people in North Wales who felt last night's earthquake which affected big parts of England.

At 1.09am, Chris Steele in Towyn, near Rhyl, wrote: "There has just been quite a powerful eathquake in Towyn which caused my desk and computer monitor to shake and pots to rattle. I have never experienced one quite as powerful as that before and thought I should write in a tell you."

Eleri Roberts in Ruthin: "I was in bed when I was woken up by a noise which I thought that the children were running around my bedroom making the wadrobes rattle. When I sat up and opended my eyes there was nobody there. I looked at the alarm clock it was around 1am. When I got up this morning and watched TV I realised that it must of been the earthquake that woke me up. Amazing!"

At 1.11am, Kev Matthias in Wrexham wrote in to say: "Did anyone else feel a shake?"

This is now the third tremor we've felt in North Wales with two others - one last October and one in May 2006.
