UK's biggest earthquake this year hits Scotland

Below is a seismograph showing the earthquake event - measuring 3.5 on the Richter Scale - that occurred in Dumfries this morning. Fortunately, it appears that no-one was injured, and there was no structural damage.

Clicking on the seismograph will take you to the site of the British Geological Survey where there is information about today's quake, and there are news reports and a video clip on the BBC website. The Times Online also has a report.

Meanwhile, memorial services have been held across the world today, to mark the second anniversary of the tsunami that devastated SE Asia on Boxing Day 2004.

Clicking on the picture will take you to the story on the Times website, where there are also questions about where the billions of pounds that were raised have gone, and why some areas are still little more than piles of rubble.
