A dramatic lava eruption that began early on Sunday near Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has continued into Monday.

At the weekend, lava fountains more than 50m (165ft) high prompted the Met Office in Iceland to raise its ash warning for aviation to red, the highest level.

Later, it reduced the alert from red to orange - the next level - saying the eruption was not creating ash.
