A grandfather from Conwy county is travelling to Nepal to help in the effort to rebuild areas affected by the massive earthquake in April.

Civil engineering contractor Gwynfor Griffiths, 59, from Llansannan, has volunteered to help with rebuilding schools over the next four weeks.

Thousands died and thousands more were injured in a 7.8-magnitude earthquake which hit Nepal's capital Kathmandu and its surrounding areas.

His trip begins on Christmas Day.

"I wanted to do something worthwhile," he said. "The situation is improving but there is still a lot of work there."
