Experts say mini earthquake was of 'high intensity'

An earthquake in an area of Hampshire, which had a magnitude of 2.9, was of "high intensity" according to geologists because of its proximity to the surface.

People reported feeling the shockwaves as far away as Newbury and Bournemouth, but the epicentre of the quake was at Winnall near Winchester.

Residents reported hearing a large bang and thought a plane had crashed.
