North Korea has fired a ballistic missile over northern Japan, the South Korean and Japanese governments say.

The missile is likely to have reached an altitude of about 770km (478 miles) and travelled some 3,700km, South Korea's military said.

The missile flew over Japan's Hokkaido island before landing in the Pacific Ocean, officials say.

Last month, North Korea fired a missile over Japan in what Tokyo called an "unprecedented threat" to the country.

This rocket flew considerably higher and further than the missile fired on 29 August, which travelled 2,700km (1,678 miles) and reached a maximum altitude of about 550km.

It is the first missile test to take place since new sanctions were imposed on North Korea by the United Nations, following Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test.

US Pacific Command said that an initial assessment of the test "indicates the launch of an intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM)".
