Sienna Miller has revealed how she was affected by a visit to Haiti, which she says was "like a horror film".

The Alfie actress, who is ambassador for the International Medical Corps, visited the earthquake-ravaged country to raise awareness of the ongoing need for aid there.

She told GMTV: "It looks like something out of a film set or a horror film, or something worse. Enormous buildings look like sandwiches piled on top of each other, and you know that amongst the rubble, there are still bodies that will never be recovered."

Sienna fears for the homeless victims, who are at risk of being 'washed away' when the hurricane season starts.

"Now the problems are really beginning and the monsoons are coming and the hurricanes are coming - and these people are more vulnerable than ever," she explained.

"I think over a million people are living in tents. Obviously everyone's houses have basically been destroyed. So when the monsoons come and the hurricanes come - and they will come - these people could very easily be washed away. So this is why we are trying to move camps in vulnerable areas and try and rebuild this place, which is such a beautiful country."
