Evacuation orders have been issued when a volcano erupted on the Caribbean island of St Vincent causing around 4,500 residents to leave their homes.

Evacuees have been given temporary accommodation on cruise ships and other parts of the island and heavy falls of ash have stopped some evacuation efforts.

It has been more than 40 years since the volcano previously erupted, costing almost $100 million in damage.

Authorities predict it could be up to four months before evacuees are allowed back into their homes.
