'Clock Ticking' As Burma Aid Trickles In

The first planeload of British aid is to arrive in Burma today more than a week after the Cyclone Nargis left swathes of the country underwater.

A consignment of bales of plastic sheeting were sent last night from a government store in Dubai - the first of four such flights as part of a £5 million UK aid package.

It also emerged that the Queen had made a "significant" personal donation to the relief effort.
