A volcano close to Iceland’s capital Reykjavik has erupted just eight months after a previous eruption ended.
The Fagradalsfjall volcano is just 20 miles from the country’s main airport, Keflavik, but so far flights have not been disrupted.
Icelandic airline PLAY issued a statement saying: “As of now, the eruption poses no threat to infrastructure or inhabitants in the area, as the lava flow seems to be coming from the site of the previous eruption in 2021.
“Keflavik International Airport is open and incoming flights are about to get a truly spectacular view!”
The Foreign Office said: “A small volcanic fissure eruption has begun (3 August) in Meradir on the Reykjanes peninsula.
“There is no direct threat to populated areas.You are advised to avoid the area while the Civil Protection Agency assess the situation and not to try to visit the site.
