Officials have placed the 2,460-metre Sinabung volcano on the Indonesia island of Sumatra under a high risk warning since it started erupting after 400 years of laying dormant.

However, this week’s blasts have been some of the biggest and closest apart since it woke up in 2010.

Authorities are now closely monitoring the magma mount.

Agus Salihin, a volcanologist at the Sinabung observation post, said the eruption was one of the biggest since early 2015.

It has been erupting continually since 2010, but there are fears the frequency is increasing.

The Indonesian government has placed an area of 3.5 km (2.1 miles) radius around the peak under a red-alert high-risk danger zone.

The government has an evacuation plan in place for the area and evacuated everyone about 10,300 villagers in the most high-risk danger zone.
