Last updated at 12:39 PM on 1st April 2011

    An earthquake of a size 2.2 magnitude rocked Blackpool in the early hours of this morning, causing houses to shake and cracks in the road to widen.
The small tremor hit the Fylde coast area at about 3.30am, and Lancashire Police received 'numerous' calls about properties shaking, a spokesman said.

The earthquake's force knocked over traffic lights, cracked a railway bridge and left some residents believing they were being broken into.
