An earthquake has been felt in Leighton Buzzard for the 3rd time in two months.

People wrote on social media they had felt their properties “jolting and shaking” at about 09: 30 BST.

The British Geological Study (BGS) verified the three.-magnitude tremor transpired just north of the Bedfordshire city.

A 3.5-magnitude earthquake was felt by residents on eight September, adopted by a two.1 magnitude tremor on 13 September.

Matt Stewart, who life in Eggington, about 1.5 miles (2.4km) from Leighton Buzzard explained the tremors “practically shook me out of mattress”.

‘A whoosh and a boom’

“It was as big as the 1st a single, I imagine,” he reported. “My wife ran downstairs and mentioned, ‘oh no, not a further one’.

“It felt like a whoosh and then a growth coming up by the earth, then it shook the bloody house and a pair of shots fell off the wall upstairs, like the past time.”

Mr Stewart described it as “a terrible feeling”.

“You might be just not in handle and I would like to know what is actually heading on, as this is the third one – it really is quite peculiar.”
