DEC appeal for Pakistan aid raises £30m

The generosity of the British public in helping Pakistan's flood victims is "shaming politicians around the world", the head of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has said.

Brendan Gormley, chief executive of the DEC, said the UK public was leading the way in giving donations, but that further funds were urgently needed.

The DEC's Pakistan Floods Appeal has now raised more than £30m.
