Lancashire doctors return to Nepal to help quake victims

Two married doctors, who work at hospitals in Lancashire, are travelling to Nepal to help people injured during last week's devastating earthquake.

Ruchi Thapa and Rajib Maharjan, who are both originally from Nepal, are spending two weeks in a remote area of the country.

The couple are among a group of 20 doctors setting off this weekend to treat patients with fractures, lacerations and other wounds.

"As doctors we just feel compelled to help," Dr Thapa explained.
