Save the Children to assess Ebola training and protocols

Save the Children will assess its training, protocols and procedures after a Scottish nurse contracted Ebola while working with the charity in Sierra Leone.

"We rely on really brave people who come forward to do this work, fully ware of the risks they face, and yet they still come forward," Save the Children's humanitarian director Michael von Bertele told Good Morning Britain.

"It is never risk free, people know that when they come to work for us, but we rely on them ... without that we wouldn't be able to tackle this outbreak so effectively."

Caroline Anning from the charity Save the Children has warned the situation in South Sudan is similar to the east African famines in the 1980s.

Speaking to ITV News' Dan Rivers she said: "If it continues and we can't get the help we need, we could be looking at a catastrophic famine."
