Police in New Zealand have called off the search for two bodies still missing after the White Island volcano.

Cruise passenger Winona Jane Langford, 17, and tour guide Hayden Bryan Marshall-Inman, 40, were among 19 people killed when the volcano erupted on December 9.

Police said they have carried out ‘extensive shoreline and substantial aerial searches’ but found ‘no further items of significance’.

Forty-seven people were on the island when the volcano erupted, including two from the UK.

All of those killed were from Australia, New Zealand or the US.

Miss Langford, from Sydney, had been travelling on Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas ship with her family. Her parents died in the eruption. Her brother survived, but has suffered severe burns.
