    SCIENTISTS are investigating an earthquake felt in much of North and East Yorkshire and York tonight.
    Calls flooded into the county's police control room shortly after 9pm from an area between York, Thirsk and Skipton, with reports also coming in from Riccall and other places south of York while people living in Manchester spoke of feeling their properties move.
    The British Geological Survey is describing the quake as having been centered on Ripon in North Yorkshire, and is asking people in the area to complete their online questionnaire to help with their inquiries.
    The US Geological Survey, using readings from a French base, is reporting it as having been six miles south-east of Leeds and six miles below ground, and with a magnitude of 3.7
