An independent organisation in Paris that measures earth tremors says reports connected to tonight's earthquake in East Yorkshire have come from as far as 100km away.
EMSC (European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre) has plotted the data on a map showing that people as far away as Birmingham, Northampton and London think they felt the tremor, though no damage from the quake is expected.
Many people have reported on Twitter feeling the earthquake that shook large parts of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire late on Saturday evening:

The British Geological Survey has published a seismology graph showing a large blip which is the tremor felt across much of East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire this evening. The large black mark towards the bottom of the chart indicate when the 3.9 magnitude tremor struck, close to Hull.
Officials say the quake is the largest in the area since the quake in Market Rasen on 27 February 2008 which, at magnitude 5.2, was 90 times larger.
They say earthquakes of this size occur approximately every two years in the UK, adding that worldwide there are approximately 8000 events annually that are larger than the one felt this evening.
