DEC raises £72m for Africa famine

The Disasters Emergency Committee, the umbrella group for aid agencies, has raised £72m for famine victims in East Africa.

It is the third largest amount the committee has collected during an appeal in its 45-year history.

Only the Tsunami Earthquake Appeal in 2004 and Haiti Earthquake Appeal last year attracted more donations.

Andy Moore reports.

Details of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) East Africa Crisis Appeal can be found at DEC.org.uk or call 0370 60 60 900 to donate.
