Footage shows latest eruption at Bardarbunga volcano

New video footage shows a fresh eruption from a fissure near the Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland's Holuhraun lava field area.

Iceland has since raised its aviation warning level, but the country's Met Office said the eruption was "a very calm lava eruption".

The footage was filmed by Rob Green from the University of Cambridge, as part of a team working with Icelandic researchers monitoring volcanic activity.
