Tonga eruption: Food and water shortage looms after supplies contaminated

Water that tens of thousands of Tongans rely on has been contaminated by salt water and ash with a shortage imminent, the Red Cross has warned, with a food crisis also looming after 'all agriculture' on the islands was destroyed.
