Closer to the epicentre, James Leonard tweeted: "Wow was that an quake in Swansea my house just shook". Police are asking people to only call if they are injured or if there are damages.

A 4.4 magnitude natural disaster shook Wales on Saturday afternoon, according to the British Geological Survey.

Port Talbot's Twitter account reported: "Temporary stop in play".
