A paramedic has described the horrific scenes moments after a bomb ripped through a shrine in Bangkok.

At least 21 people were killed in the blast at the Erawan Shrine overnight, with more than 120 others injured.

The death toll is expected to rise.

Mark Cunningham from the Bangkok Free Ambulance Service has described to Gary Adshead on 6PR Mornings, the devastating scene he came upon when he thought he was responding to a less serious incident.
