Italy earthquake: Thousands in tents overnight

Thousands of people in Northern Italy have spent the night in tents after a second deadly earthquake within a fortnight struck the region claiming at least 16 lives.

Its epicentre was near Modena, close to where a similar quake struck nine days earlier.

Factories and a warehouse collapsed, crushing workers, and several churches were wrecked.

The BBC's Janey Mitchell reports.
