The earthquake, measuring 2.6 on the Richter scale, was recorded near the village of Newdigate in Mole Valley at a depth of 5km at around 12.30pm on Wednesday.

In the wake of the earthquake, there was multiple reports of shaking and a “loud thud” as seismic waves rattled through the region.

The tremor comes just three months after a 2.7 magnitude earthquake struck near Newdigate on April 1, Easter Sunday.

It was the first earthquake to be recorded in the region for more than 250 years.
