Man describes second East Midlands earthquake

A second earthquake has hit the Rutland town of Oakham, according to experts.

The British Geological Survey (BSG) said the tremor, which struck the East Midlands town at 07:50 BST, measured 3.5 magnitude.

It happened a day after a 3.2 magnitude quake struck the same area. There are no reports of any damage or injuries.

Rutland resident Richard Besant told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "There was a large bang followed by a lot of rattling of glass in the cabinets... It's the best alarm clock we've ever had."
