Earthquake shakes the East Midlands

Residents across the East Midlands were left shaken but unharmed following an earthquake that struck yesterday evening (Wednesday).

The tremors, which had a recorded strength of 3.8, was centred around the Rutland town of Oakham but could be felt as far afield as Keighley, north of Leeds and in Grimsby on the coast.

North Derbyshire didn’t escape the quake either with residents in both Matlock and Buxton reporting feeling the earth move.

It struck just around 10.25pm on Wednesday and follows another quake reported in Hampshire on Tuesday.

Derbyshire Police have said no damage has been caused to any buildings following the earthquake and there are currently no reports of anyone being injured.
