Icelandic volcano erupts near Reykjavik

A volcano has erupted south-west of Iceland’s capital Reykjavik, the country’s meteorological office says.

It says the fissure is about 500-700 metres long (1,640-2,300ft) at Fagradalsfjall on Reykjanes peninsula. The last eruption there was some 800 years ago.

Aerial footage shows lava snaking its way down after the eruption.
