Wales' Filipino community reacts to storm devastation

As the people of the Philippines continue to struggle with the devastation caused by one of the most powerful storms ever recorded, the Filipino community in Wales has desperately been waiting for news of family and friends caught up in the disaster.

The latest figures reveal the shocking scale of the crisis. Twelve thousand people are now feared dead, 800,000 people need the most basic of supplies such as water and shelter, and some 4.3 million people were in the path of the typhoon - that's one and half times the entire population of Wales.

ITV News has been speaking to the Filipino community here about how they are trying to support loved ones on the other side of the world.
