Thousands stuck without food, water or heat as Turkey-Syria death toll surpasses 16,000

More than16,000 people are now known to have died after Monday’s earthquakes in southern Turkey and northern Syria

Without shelter, water, fuel or electricity the World Health Organization fears many survivors could yet lose their lives

It says there’s a danger there will be a secondary disaster which may cause harm to more people than the initial quake

Rescuers are continuing their painstaking work but hopes are fading for the many still trapped under the rubble

Dozens of British charities will launch an appeal later to raise funds for people affected

Turkey says it hopes to open two more border crossings into Syria to enable the delivery of much-needed supplies there.
