We have not received a request for assistance from the Government of Iceland. There has been no volcanic eruption on the Rekjanes Peninsula and the level of seismic activity that led to the evacuation of the town of Grindavik has also decreased significantly. The British Embassy in Reykjavik is following the situation closely and remains in contact with the Icelandic authorities.
