Nepal quake: Charity's anxious wait for news

The death toll in the aftermath of the powerful earthquake that hit Nepal at the weekend continues to rise.

Chris Sowton is founder of Global Action Nepal (GAN), a charity which sets up education and social welfare projects in often remote areas of the country.

He told the BBC's Chris Rogers it was proving "almost impossible" to get any information on the wellbeing of those at GAN project sites in Lamjung district, the epicentre of the quake.
