Crete earthquake – Brit tourists terrified as mag-6 quake rocks Greek island.

Sofia Meadowcroft, 24, from Hornby, Cumbria, says the whole room started to shake as a huge 6.0 quake hit the Greek island - killing a dad-of-two.

Brit tourists were evacuated from resorts and islanders ran out into the streets when the quake shook their homes at 9.17am local time.

Sofia is staying at a hotel near Heraklion and says she is thankful that her one-year-old daughter Ayla was strapped into her pram when the giant tremor happened.
