Villagers left stranded as Mount Sinabung eruptions continue

Indonesia's Mount Sinabung has had two large eruptions this week including one which saw volcanic ash spewing to a record height of 10km. Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes until the eruptions settle. Families have taken shelter, some of which are said to have been there since eruptions began in September. (Getty)
