More small earthquakes have hit the island of Islay off the west coast of Scotland.

Five tremors shook the island between 07:04 and 09:32. One resident described a very deep, loud rumble.

The British Geological Survey recorded the strongest at a magnitude of 2.8. A spokeswoman said there were no reports of any damage.

A further four small earthquakes have already affected the area this month, reaching up to a magnitude of 2.6.
