Nearly £900,000 has been donated by people from Wales towards relief work in earthquake-hit Nepal.

Thousands of people have contributed, with the money set to be used to help the estimated four million Nepalese people in urgent need of clean water.

The £870,000 will be used by the Disaster Emergency Committee Nepal Earthquake Appeal.

Donations were also collected in Brecon, home to the Ghurkha Wing (Mandalay) company.
