Worry returned for the residents of the Murcia town of Lorca on Sunday when it was once again hit by earth tremors.

It is almost three months since the double quake on May 11 brought death and havoc to the town, and in the early hours of Sunday the emergency 112 number received 80 calls as the earth moved again.
The largest tremor was 2.5 on the Richter Scale and located just 5kms from the town at 3.32 am. It followed an early 1.6 tremor 12 kilometres away to the south east at 1.24am.

Walls were reported to have moved and lamps vibrated as the tremor hit but there were no reports of any injuries or material damage.
