Save the Children have launched an appeal for donations for the African nation of South Sudan, which is on the brink of a famine.
The children's charity said that without immediate action the situation will deteriorate catastrophically, as across the world’s youngest nation, 2.5 million children are struggling without the basic means to survive.
ITV News correspondent Dan Rivers reports:
The United Nations has already warned that without a cash injection, South Sudan will face the worst starvation in Africa since the 1980s.
