NZ volcano eruption victims still fighting for their lives one month on

Twenty-six others are still in hospital in New Zealand and in Australia, with some still requiring round the clock care and fighting for their lives.

The brother of missing tour guide Hayden Marshall-Inman is hopeful his body will be found.
