That makes it closer to the surface than the 6.0 quake late last month and slightly stronger – though provisional reading then had registered it as more ferocious than it later turned out to be.

The epicentre was 23 km east of the village of Zakros and had a shallow depth of just 2 km, the organisation said.

The fire brigade had not received any immediate calls for help, a police official said.

A Greek seismologist said that Tuesday’s quake came from a different fault line to the incident on September 27.
