As a result little has been known about how the islanders fared following the impact of Cyclone Pam nearly a month ago.

But Brian Tom from the National Disaster Management Office has reached Tikopia and says the locals are coping relatively well.

He tells Liam Fox that food gardens were destroyed but aid is on the way.
