Ebola: Cardiff co-founder of charity on effect

A British man who contracted the Ebola virus while working in Sierra Leone has been flown back to the UK on board an RAF jet for treatment.

The health care worker, who had been looking after people infected with the disease, is being treated in an isolation unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London.

So with the dangers facing healthcare workers, what has the knock-on effect been for those charities who would normally be carrying out work in the region?

Angela Gorman, a retired nurse from Cardiff who co-founded Life for African Mothers, explains to Felicity Evans how some of the charity's programmes have been suspended because of the virus.

She said in Liberia it seemed to be "chaos".
