A Buddhist monk from a village near Rugby is missing in Nepal after the devastating earthquake.

Martin Gattuso, from Harborough Magna, has been listed as one of the missing Britons by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on Saturday.

Martin, 38, has been teaching English to children in Punakha, Nepal.

There may be hope for Martin after his father Michael, from Rugby, said one of his other children had heard from a friend in Nepal that his son had been seen heading towards China.
