The Love Telford page on Twitter posted: “I heard a rumble and felt the desk shake.

“The fact others have asked the question makes me think it must have been.”

Another local took to social media to say she had felt her bed shake.

Michelle Jupp said: “That was a real WTF moment, Sat on my bed and it starts shaking then realised the whole house was shaking. It was over fast & I was like, did we just have an earthquake?

“Jumped on Facebook & apparently yes. I’m in Wem & saw people saying it was felt in Shrewsbury & Whitchurch too.”

The British Geological Survey wrote on Twitter that the earthquake struck at 3.36pm at a depth of 8km.

It said: “BGS has received numerous reports that this event has been felt by residents in Shropshire and surrounding counties.”

The affected areas include Shrewsbury, Telford, Stafford and Stoke-on-Trent.

Caroline and Paul Blair, from Whitchurch some 10 miles away, told the Shropshire Star: “We were sitting watching TV and I heard a noise like a door slamming if you have left two doors open through the house.

“Then we noticed that our TV, which is on a stand, was moving and then the sofa that we were both sitting on just rocked. It was so weird, it was like someone was jumping on it.”
