Earth moves on Mull

An earthquake has been recorded on the island of Mull in Argyll.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the 2.1-magnitude quake was felt on the island and in Oban on the mainland.

The earthquake was recorded at 2126 BST on Thursday and came just days after a 1.9-magnitude event was record east of Yell on Shetland.

In January, people in Inverness, Skye and Oban reported tremors when a 3.5-magnitude quake struck in Glenelg.
