And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. A

:00:09.:00:18.

second earthquake has shaken parts of Rutland and Leicestershire today

:00:19.:00:22.

` just 24 hours after the l`st one. The latest quake struck the Oakham

:00:23.:00:26.

area at around ten to eight this morning. It had a magnitude of .5 `

:00:27.:00:31.

which experts say is three times more powerful than the first. Paul

:00:32.:00:41.

Bradshaw reports. The countryside around Oakham does not look like an

:00:42.:00:46.

earthquake zone but now, after two tremors emanating from the `rea have

:00:47.:00:50.

shaken scores of houses across Leicestershire, that is what it

:00:51.:00:55.

feels like. The earthquake was felt 40 kilometres away from the

:00:56.:01:00.

epicentre in the field behind me. Some local residents say thdy were

:01:01.:01:09.

woken by the earthquake. Thd roof was shaking, there were little bits

:01:10.:01:17.

falling down into the attic, and it was totally frightening. It felt

:01:18.:01:22.

like an underground explosion. There was one hell of a rumble, it was

:01:23.:01:26.

bigger than yesterday. It fdlt like a train right next to me. I put my

:01:27.:01:30.

hand on the washing line to steady myself. Experts say that thd double

:01:31.:01:39.

event is not that rare. It hs not that unusual or unprecedentdd to see

:01:40.:01:42.

a series of earthquakes where there is no distinct main shock. @fter two

:01:43.:01:51.

days of the largest seismic activity in the area since 2001, people are

about this. Jason Blakey em`iled us to say he felt it ` followed by a

:02:10.:02:13.

rattle and vibration which seemed to come from under the house and right

:02:14.:02:17.

through it! He was having breakfast at the time ad called it a

:02:18.:02:24.

'hair`raising experience' . Jay Jenner contacted us on our Facebook

:02:25.:02:27.

page to say: Two mornings in a row my alarm clock wasn't needed, it

:02:28.:02:31.

seems Oakham is becoming a hot zone for the earth moving. And on Twitter

:02:32.:02:41.

Rhian Ivory got in touch to say she thought it was far bigger longer

:02:42.:02:45.

than yesterday's quake. A bht of a shock to get another one around the

:02:46.:02:48.

same time of day. There's bden no Good Friday good will betwedn

Nottingham City Council's L`bour leadership and the Communithes

Secretary Eric Pickles. The City Council today started legal

:02:54.:02:55.

proceedings against the govdrnment department over rubbish outside

:02:56.:02:58.

Lancaster House. That's a v`cant office block in the city whhch the

:02:59.:03:02.

council says is owned by Mr Pickle's department. They tell us it isn t

there've been plenty of events happening across the region today.

:03:43.:03:45.

Among them, in Nottingham, different faiths worshipped together.

:03:46.:03:47.

Christians made their way to the Mosque in Bobbers Mill from the

:03:48.:03:51.

United Reformed Church nearby. Muslims and Christians praydd

:03:52.:03:53.

together outside ` to show tnity across the faiths. We have the same

:03:54.:04:04.

aspirations and prayers, and the same feelings, and I think ht is

:04:05.:04:08.

important to show those and communicate those to the wider

:04:09.:04:12.

world. Sadly, we often see the divisions between Muslims and

:04:13.:04:15.

Christians throughout the world and that is what gets the media's

:04:16.:04:20.

attention, but from the grass roots, we want to show a different

:04:21.:04:24.

way of being together. Sport now, and Derby County's game this evening

one. And in League Two, Mansfield Town were at Accrington, whdre it

:04:48.:04:50.

ended in a one`all draw. Cr`cking weather so far for most of ts, let's

:04:51.:04:53.

see what's in store for the rest of the Bank Holiday now with K`ye.

:04:54.:04:54.

Town were at Accrington, whdre it ended in a Good evening, it has been

:04:55.:04:57.

a lovely start to the bank holiday weekend, but we have seen the

:04:58.:05:00.

brightest day of the festivhties as things turned cloudy. We will pick

:05:01.:05:05.

up a easterly wind as well. The clouds will melt away this dvening,

:05:06.:05:10.

and we have a dry night ahe`d. The temperatures will take a tulble once

:05:11.:05:15.

again, and we will be close to freezing in rural spots by the

:05:16.:05:18.

morning, maybe even a littld bit lower than that. A cold start, but

:05:19.:05:23.

right as well. If you are up early, there will be sunshine, but we will

:05:24.:05:28.

start to see changes through the day as well. It is going to be cloudier

:05:29.:05:33.

for us but we will stay dry tomorrow. A little bit cooldr in the

:05:34.:05:41.

wind with highs of 12 or 13 degrees. It looks like we will see an area of

:05:42.:05:46.

low pressure from the south or east. There is some doubt as to how far

Today we have seen temperatures rising if Scotland but again

:06:11.:06:15.

tonight, with the clear skies and light wind temperatures will fall

:06:16.:06:18.

sharply, and for many of us, we are looking at a touch of frost. The

:06:19.:06:22.

satellite picture tells a story nicely. This belt of cloud is

:06:23.:06:25.

sitting in the far north-west of Scotland, we have had this cloud

:06:26.:06:30.

bubbling up across eastern areas and with the northerly wind it has felt

:06:31.:06:33.

cold in East Anglia. That cloud is going to melt away, we will get an

:06:34.:06:37.

easterly breeze picking the cloud back in again later in the night in

:06:38.:06:40.

eastern areas and we still have this cloud and rain in the far north west
