Ten people have died following two earthquakes centred close to the Murcia town of Lorca on Wednesday. The first quake around 5pm was measured at 4.4 on the Richter Scale, but the second at 8.47pm reached 5.1.

The Government Delegation offices described the situation in the town as ‘chaotic’ on Wednesday evening as the local hospital had to be evacuated because of cracks appearing in the walls.
‘Everyone is in the street. There is a lot of fear’ said one local, as people ignored calls from the local Mayor for people to return to their homes.
