Wed, 22 Dec 2010

An earthquake measuring three-point-five on the richter scale was felt on the Isle of Man last night.

The epicentre of the quake was in Cumbria sixty miles from Douglas.

The emergency services have reported that the effects were felt in Ramsey, Peel, Onchan and Laxey.

No injuries or damage has been reported on the Island as a result of the tremor.
