Leighton Buzzard hit by two earthquakes in one day

A town in Bedfordshire has experienced two earthquakes in one day.

It is the third and fourth time people in Leighton Buzzard have felt tremors in the space of two weeks.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) confirmed a 3.0-magnitude earthquake happened just north of the town at about 09:30 BST and a 2.1-magnitude tremor occurred at about 13:40.

People reported their houses "jolting and shaking" when the larger quake struck.

Since 8 September there have been four earthquakes in the town, the BGS confirmed.
