Concern is growing for a County Durham couple in New Zealand who have not got in touch with family following the devastating volcanic eruption.
Karl and Deb Rakos, who are both in their 50s and from Darlington, are on holiday there and were planning to go on to Australia.
Their family has now confirmed they haven't been in touch since the eruption.
White Island volcano blew yesterday, killing at least six people and leaving more than 30 others in hospital.
Karl's son Mark said: "I've been trying to call my dad since Sunday and now I'm getting quite worried to be honest."
