Dr Aziz Hafiz, who is Director of Disaster Relief at the charity Humanity First, left with a medical team for Nepal on Sunday. He said he was just returning from a visit with Nepal's Home Minister when the car he was travelling with started to "wobble and shake".

He said there was no loss of life in the immediate area and he and his team were concentrating on making emergency shelters.
