Ebola aid appeal launched by Disasters Emergency Committee
An appeal for the Ebola crisis in West Africa is to be launched by the Disasters Emergency Committee.
It is the first time the DEC - a group of 13 UK aid charities - has sought funds over a disease outbreak, which it says is "a sign of how serious the situation has become."
Appeals will be made by all the main UK broadcasters on Thursday, with the government saying it will match the first £5m donated.
