Welcome back to another volcano RVK Newscast. Join Reykjavík Grapevine’s editor in chief, Valur Grettisson, for a walk around the eruption site at Meradalir and all the latest volcano news.

Children under 12 have been banned at the new volcano after a family required rescuing by the Search and Rescue service (SAR). The decision has caused frustration, with some taking to Twitter to complain about the restriction. Read more here.

The Civil Defence in Iceland has announced that Icelanders should be prepared that the eruption could last for months. This means that it could affect infrastructure such as Suðurstrandarvegur (The South beach road). Read more here.
