Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

The volcano in Iceland which is causing major disruption across Europe has now started flood waters.

The ash clouds from the eruption have already caused thousands of flights to be cancelled.

But now huge chunks of ice the size of houses have tumbled from the volcano, causing flash floods.

The area nearby has been evacuated as the water washed parts of the main road away.
