About 1,500 people are being evacuated from islands off Papua New Guinea, where a long-dormant volcano has started erupting, the Red Cross says.

The volcano on Kadovar island began emitting smoke and ash last week, prompting the evacuation of more than 500 people to nearby Blup Blup island.

But as the eruptions have become more violent, those who fled Kadovar will now have to be taken to the mainland.

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is home to a number of active volcanoes.
