Leighton Buzzard has been hit by an earthquake for the third time in two weeks with scientists saying there could be more to come.

The British Geological Society confirmed the magnitude three tremor hit the Bedfordshire town on Tuesday morning, following the initial quake on September 8 and a first aftershock on September 13, which were magnitude 3.5 and 2.1.

Glenn Ford, a seismologist with the BGS said

Mr Ford also says it's possible another tremor will follow but it isn't known when that could happen.

Reports say today's quake only lasted a couple of seconds and was like a single jolt like a car doing an emergency stop.
