Iceland volcanic 'cauldrons' raise fears of sub-glacial eruption

Scientists are again investigating a volcano in Iceland after a number of depressions were found on its surface.

It is thought the sinkholes, measuring up to one kilometre wide, may have been caused by a sub-glacial eruption.

Increased seismic activity in the area has prompted fears of a looming eruption which could emit plumes of ash.

The last such incident in 2010 led to the grounding of flights across Europe.
