Britons urged to dig deep for quake victims

Britons were urged to dig deep in their pockets today as an emergency appeal was launched to help survivors of the South Asia earthquake.
As British rescue teams continued to hunt for the missing, the Disasters Emergency Committee, which covers the UK's leading aid organisations, launched its Asia Quake Appeal.

Around 30,000 people are thought to have perished and millions were left homeless by the 7.6-magnitude quake which flattened parts of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan on Saturday.
