[It was] frustrating probably more than anything.

– Kay and Nigel Carpenter

Emergency teams struggle to reach thousands

International aid has begun to arrive in Nepal, but emergency teams are struggling to reach thousands of families in remote areas, aid workers say. UK charities will make a joint television appeal tonight to raise desperately needed funds for the victims of the earthquake.

It's now known almost four and half thousand people were killed but one woman survived after 50 hours under the rubble. A growing number of Britons missing in Nepal have been contacting their families to say they are safe - but at least 50 are still unaccounted for.

Nick Dixon sent this report and Richard Gaisford was live with more from Nepal.

We speak to Richard Staveley, who's Head of Global Marketing at Protein World, the company responsible for the advert, he said the advert is only suggesting if the individual has "reached and attained your own goals that you've set for yourself".
