More than a million people in New Zealand have taken part in what is believed to be the world's first nationwide earthquake drill.

Sirens were sounded across the country alerting people to take cover.

It comes after last year's earthquake in Christchurch which killed nearly 200 people.

Duncan Kennedy reports.
