Dozens of people have been killed and thousands forced from their homes after a major earthquake struck Indonesia.

Rescue teams are heading to the quake's epicentre amid fears the death toll could rise.

The quake struck off the southern coast of Java.

Dozens of buildings are reported to have been flattened and the quake was powerful enough to shake buildings in Jakarta, the capital.
