Volcanic ash blankets towns and villages in Java

Three people have died and tens of thousands have been evacuated from their homes on the main island of Java after Mount Kelud erupted.

Towns and villages across a wide area of eastern Java have been blanketed with up to 5cm of ash.

Three main airports in Surabaya, Solo and Jogyakarta have been closed because of lack of visibility and fears about damage to aircraft engines.
