(MELBOURNE) JUST IN: #Earthquake Report: 5.9 magnitude has rattled southeast Australia, on wednesday damaging buildings in the city and stretching as far as New South Wales #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.23: Prime Minister Scott Morrison said “we have had no reports of serious injuries and that is very good news”.

#AceDailyNews says that a Melbourne #Earthquake: Tremor rattles southeast Australia on Wednesday that happened about 09:15 local time (23:15 GMT) on Wednesday at Mansfield, not far from the Victorian state capital and was also felt in neighbouring South Australia and New South Wales (NSW).

It was followed by two aftershocks of 4.0 and 3.1 magnitude.

While this is one of Australia’s largest earthquakes in recent years, it has not caused significant damage.

Speaking from the US, Mr Morrison noted earthquakes were uncommon in Australia and they “can be a very, very disturbing event”.

Victoria’s State Emergency Service warned residents to be alert for possible aftershocks.

“If you are located in Victoria, you are in danger. Expect aftershocks, stay away from damaged buildings and other hazards. Avoid driving, except for emergencies,” the authority said.

Quake hit during heart operation

Surgeon Sameer Thakur said he had been performing a heart bypass operation in Geelong, near Melbourne, when the quake hit.

“We’re sort of in the crux of the operation and we just felt the whole operating table move,” he told BBC Newsday. 

“Looking around the room, all the IV poles were moving and some of the clamps that we have, they were all shaking.” 

He said “fortunately we were at a stage where we could come to a halt” until the shaking stopped, allowing them to complete the surgery.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation shared a clip of its breakfast TV presenters reacting in the studio as the earthquake hit.Watch the moment an earthquake shakes Australian TV studio

“Is it an earthquake or a structural thing?” presenter Michael Rowland was later shown asking producers. “Let’s go… that was a big one.”

Several high-rise towers and a city hospital were also briefly evacuated, residents reported. Some city tram lines had been suspended due to damage.

South Australia Premier Stephen Marshall said his state had felt aftershocks. 

One federal MP, Michael McCormack, said the “ground [was] shaking violently” in Wagga Wagga, NSW.

Large earthquakes are uncommon in Australia because the continent lies centrally on a tectonic plate.

This quake struck at a shallow depth of 10km (6.5 miles), according to Geosciences Australia. It was initially measured at 6.0 magnitude before being revised to 5.9.

The geoscience agency says Australia experiences a potentially damaging earthquake – defined as above 6.0 magnitude – about every 10 years. 

Melbourne, the country’s second largest city, is home to about five million people.

The city is currently in lockdown due to a recent wave of coronavirus cases.

(LONDON) MET REPORT: A day of protest activity in central London has concluded with seven arrests and without any significant incidents #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.24: In the week leading up to the event, the Met engaged with event organisers to understand the risk assessment that they had in place and to determine whether the event was able to be held in accordance with the remaining #COVID19 restrictions:

LONDON: Day of protest activity concludes with seven arrests but no significant incidents: ‘The National Demonstration for Palestine set off from Victoria Embankment in the early afternoon with participants making their way to Hyde Park where invited speakers addressed the crowd from a stage’

A comprehensive policing plan was in place which saw resources from the Metropolitan Police, the City of London Police and the British Transport Police deployed at key locations around the protest route. 

In addition, significant community engagement took place prior to and throughout the day to explain how officers were responding to the protests in addition to other updates to ensure communities felt informed. 

Independent Advisory Group members, including representatives from the Jewish and Muslim communities, attended the Special Operations Room so they could observe first hand the focus on proportionate and impartial policing throughout the day.

As well as the resources who were with the demonstration, additional officers patrolled in communities and on the roads and transport network outside the centre of the city to reassure Londoners and to be able to respond quickly to any incidents. 

The majority of those participating in the demonstration made their way in a safe manner to Hyde Park and dispersed calmly following the planned speeches. 

An isolated group chose to separate from the main event and make their way to Kensington High Street in the vicinity of the Israeli Embassy where they were monitored by officers. 

Shortly after 19:00hrs, a small group left the area and made their way through local streets. Damage was caused to a passing car and some missiles were thrown at officers. Efforts to engage with the group proved unsuccessful. 

In order to prevent a further breach of the peace and to ensure the safety of the wider community, the group was contained by officers and released in a controlled manner with those responsible for offences arrested and the remainder ordered to disperse. 

In total there were seven arrests during the course of the day for the following offences:

  • Racially aggravated public order offence. 
  • Homophobic public order offence. 
  • Going equipped to steal (x2). 
  • Violent disorder (x3). 

All those arrested were male. They have been taken into custody. 

Chief Superintendent Andy Walker, who led the police operation, said: “Today we saw a significant number of people gather in central London to take part in a demonstration. Our policing plan was successfully implemented and I am pleased that the main event was facilitated safely and without incident: “ We reacted quickly to the decision by a small group to break away from the main protest and where offences were identified, arrests were made: “ As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic we are still striking a careful balance between the rights of demonstrators and the need to keep Londoners safe and prevent a resurgence of the virus. I am grateful to the majority of those who attended this event, and to our officers, for helping to achieve those objectives today.”
