Charity worker describes 'wide-spread panic' as second quake hits Nepal

A worker for Milton Keynes-based charity World Vision has described the scenes in Nepal after the country was hit by the second major earthquake in weeks.

Speaking to ITV News Anglia via Skype she described the scenes as the quake struck.

Instantly there was wide-spread panic. People ran screaming onto the streets. People here are still reeling from the April earthquake and clearly it came a little too close to home because on the street there was absolute mayhem. People were crying, screaming, trying to use their phones to reach their families with very little luck.

People are already absolutely living in fear from the April earthquake and this was the most powerful earthquake that they've felt. The walls were literally shaking and several hours afterwards we continued to experience very severe shocks and I can still see the community out on the street. They don't know what to do with themselves.

Thousands flocked to centre:mk to celebrate the club's promotion to the Championship.

The triumphant squad, who were promoted in a dramatic final day of the season, paid tribute to the fans for their support.

The fans celebrate

but for club chairman Pete Winkelman it was the culmination of 15 years of hard work.

"I can't tell you how important it is we got this team to the Championship and how proud I am to talk about Milton Keynes Dons as a Championship club, starting to be a club that Milton Keynes can truly become proud of, because we're a big important place here and we want big important football, we've got the stadium and now we've got a team to go with it."

– Pete Winkelman

"Once you achieve that... then it sort of hits you and then it scares you a little bit. But then as soon as you start looking at the teams that we're looking to play next season, it's going to be quite remarkable. We know how difficult it's going to be, so now it's the element of 'That's now gone, how can we plan for the future?' And already we're looking at players, we're looking at new contracts and... it's sort of not stopped."
