Hopes fade for NZ quake missing

Hopes are fading of finding survivors beneath collapsed buildings in the aftermath of Tuesday's earthquake in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

The Foreign Office has confirmed that two Britons are among the 98 people now known to have died in the New Zealand earthquake in Christchurch.
