Nepal earthquake: Aid yet to arrive in ruined village

The United Nations has announced that the relief effort in response to last Saturday's earthquake in Nepal has now been broadened to include the hard hit areas to the north and west of the capital Kathmandu.

These more remote, mountainous regions were close to the epicentre of the earthquake which killed at least 5,000 people. But a BBC team has been to a district north of the capital, where the largest number of people died, and found no evidence of any aid arriving.

Reporter Richard Galpin and video journalist Howard Johnson report from the village of Deupur Sipaghat Kavre.
