An earthquake that struck the Rutland area of the East Midlands has been felt as far away as Grantham, 25 miles away.

It was just 24 hours after a slightly smaller tremor shook houses in Rutland for around 10 seconds. The latest quake struck the Oakham area at around 7.50am today.

Scores of people in the Grantham area of Lincolnshire have taken to Facebook and Twitter to say they felt the quake, which measured 3.5 on the Richter scale.
