An appeal to raise £2m for victims of the flooding in Pakistan raised £100,000 in 24 hours.

Birmingham-based Islamic Relief Worldwide appealed for the cash to provide assistance to survivors.

The United Nations has said three million people had been affected and more than 1,400 had been killed.

The government said that about 27,000 people still remained trapped. Renewed rain on Tuesday has slowed the relief effort.
