Tsunami survivor: 'It was like a bath had filled up'

Memorial services have been held in Indonesia and other nations for the victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami on the 10th anniversary of the disaster.

Nearly a quarter of million people died in what is now believed to be the worst natural disaster in the last 50 years.

Karen Jones from Cardiff was in Phuket, Thailand, when the tsunami hit and said she was saved because she had a third floor room - and had decided not to go to the beach that morning.
