A 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Indonesia this week, forcing many people to escape their homes and buildings.

Among those caught up in the aftershocks were John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen and Take That star Gary Barlow.

Gary went on Twitter yesterday (August 5) to thank fans for their messages of concern, after a massive earthquake hit near to where he and his family are holidaying.

He reassured fans that he and his family are safe after the earthquake struck Lombok.

“Thank you for your concern - we’re all fine - a bit shaken up," he tweeted.

He had previously been sharing photos and videos from his break in Bali, including footage of him practising yoga.

The quake was 10.5 kilometres (6.5 miles) deep and struck near Loloan. The Indonesia Red Cross later reported that four of its volunteers were injured, and had been transported to a hospital.

A tsunami warning had been issued, but it has since been lifted.
