Vanuatu cyclone: Saltney teacher James Roberts helps islanders

A teacher from Flintshire is helping people rebuild their lives following the devastating cyclone that hit Vanuatu a week ago.

James Roberts from Saltney moved to the region to volunteer in 2011, teaching maths and science on Pentecost, one of islands that make up the South Pacific nation.

He was in the capital Port Vila when Cyclone Pam hit last week and flew back to Pentecost to find a scene of "devastation" with homes wrecked and crops destroyed by winds of up to 185mph.

Matthew Richards reports.
