Mexico hit by strong earthquake near Acapulco

A large earthquake has struck near Acapulco on Mexico's Pacific coast.

The United States Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.6 and put the epicentre at 25 km (15 miles) east of Ometepec, in Guerrero state.

The BBC's Will Grant reports from the capital, Mexico City, where he said buildings had swayed "for well over a minute", sending office workers rushing out onto the streets
