James Lavers volunteers to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone

A Gwynedd doctor is flying to Sierra Leone to join Britain's fight against the Ebola virus.

James Lavers, 37, an intensive care registrar at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, will join more than 30 NHS volunteers in Africa.

He will complete a week of training in the capital Freetown before moving to British-built Ebola treatment centres.

Dr Lavers said: "I decided to volunteer because this could be the biggest medical disaster of my lifetime."
