Video has emerged from Bali filmed by a British tourist of volcanic ash rising into the skies over Mount Agung.

In the video, filmed by wedding photographer Elaine Borges-Ibanez on Saturday from the Great Mountain Views Resort, a resort worker sweeps away volcanic ash from the side of a swimming pool as Mount Agung can be seen in the background, the volcano sending a huge column of smoke into the air.

In the video, she says: "The sky is black, high, high into the sky. Nothing to see, just the edge of Mount Agung, billowing out smoke."

Indonesian authorities ordered a mass evacuation on Monday around the erupting volcano.

The island's international airport has also closed, stranding travellers.
