Fears for future of Ebola orphanage in Sierra Leone

There is growing concern about the future of an orphanage run by a British charity in Sierra Leone, after one member of staff died last week from Ebola, and his wife passed away on Wednesday morning.

The Saint George Foundation Orphanage in the capital, Freetown, is now in quarantine, with more than 20 children and seven staff in lock-down.

In the last year, it has helped hundreds of children orphaned by the Ebola virus. Clive Myrie reports from Sierra Leone.
