    William Pooley, the British nurse who survived Ebola, has described the Band Aid 30 single as "cringeworthy" and "a bit much".
    He said he heard the first half of the song on his way into work in Sierra Leone where he is treating Ebola sufferers at an isolation unit.
    Mr Pooley noted the track was "definitely being talked about here among my colleagues".
    "It's Africa, not another planet," Mr Pooley told the Radio Times magazine.
    "Stuff about Do They Know It's Christmas? It's just like, actually people live normal lives here and do normal things.
    "That sort of cultural ignorance is a bit cringeworthy. There's a lyric about 'death in every tear,' it's just a bit much.
