Videos on social media showed people gathered outside Swansea University, which was holding an open day, after an apparent evacuation.

The British Geological Survey said the epicentre was approximately 20km north-north-east of Swansea and at a depth of 7.4km.

Events of this magnitude happen in the United Kingdom every three to five years, the BGS said.
