BBC Philharmonic Orchestra returns after Japan quake
Members of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra caught up in the Japanese earthquake have arrived back in the UK.
Ninety musicians with the Manchester-based orchestra experienced the 9.0-magnitude tremor travelling on a coach from Tokyo to Yokohama.
The orchestra was scheduled to perform 10 concerts across the country but cancelled its last four to return home.
The coach was crossing a suspension bridge when the earthquake struck about 80 miles (130km) off the Pacific coast.
