Sherwood MP Mark Spencer has said he will continue to seek advice from the British Geological Survey over the large number of small tremors in the Ollerton area recently.

A report by the survey showed there have been 82 small earthquakes in and around the town since mid-December last year.

A spokesman for the survey said Ollerton was an area with a history of seismic activity related to coal mining and the recent seismic activity was consistent with this.
