Tonga tsunami: Family of British woman swept away by wave are ‘devastated’

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Tonga tsunami: Family of British woman swept away by wave are ‘devastated'” – below is their description.

The brother of a British woman, who has been missing since the tsunami in Tonga on Saturday, has confirmed her body has been found.

50 year-old Angela Glover who was known for her animal welfare work, is understood to have been trying to rescue her dogs when she was swept away.

Relief efforts have been hampered by a towering ash cloud which prevented flights reaching the island nation but New Zealand and Australia have now been able to send military surveillance planes to Tonga to assess the damage.

Our Science and Technology Editor Tom Clarke reports.
