New Zealand police say they don't believe there are any survivors on an island where a volcano has erupted.

At least 5 people are dead.

It's still too dangerous for rescue teams to reach White Island, but aircraft flying over it have seen no signs of life.

Deputy police commissioner John Tims estimated the number of people still there might be in 'double digits'.

"We're absolutely working with a range of people to make sure that we identify the numbers, the names of who's on the island of visiting the island so we're just working through that -- but it does take time," Tims said.
