    New earthquake warning for Tokyo

    CAPITAL – home to 39m people – is facing devastation as a new quake threat hits Japan

    TEEMING Tokyo is facing devastation as a new earthquake threat hits Japan.

    Experts warned last night that the capital - home to 39 million people - is near a spot where massive pressures are set to erupt under the earth's crust.
    The resulting quake won't be as violent as the 8.9-scale disaster that triggered the tsunami on March 11.

    But Tokyo - 200 miles from the epicentre of that quake - is packed with high-rise buildings.
    British Geological Survey expert Roger Musson said: "Even if you got, let's say, a 7.5, that would be serious."
    The alert came as serious levels of radioactivity were found in food produced in Japan.
