A Japanese man has been telling Heart he's worried about his father who's in Japan following the massive earthquake there.

Helen Lambard, from near Aylsham in Norfolk, is a volunteer for the International Rescue Corp. and has helped out on natural disasters such as the Pakistan and Turkey earthquakes.

Helen says the first she heard of the disaster in Japan was at 7am this morning when she was asked by text message if she would be available to help the country should the search and rescue team be needed. She understands the offer was made to the country but they have received no reply.
