News about the Laacher See volcano:

Laacher See volcano (Germany): no reason to think it is going to erupt anytime soon

Mofettes aan de oever van de Laacher See vulkaan kratermeer, waaruit blijkt dat de magmatische systeem onder de krater wordt ontgassen (niets bijzonders!). (Foto: Tobias Schorr)

The Daily Mail writes today "Is a super-volcano just 390 miles from London about to erupt?", suggesting that the Laacher See volcano in Western Germany could "erupt any time" and produce a large eruption such as the devastating (but still moderate, not super-volcano at all) Plinian eruption 11,900 years ago.
Unfortunately, what the Daily Mail writes, is more dark fantasy than anything else. There is no scientific background to assume that an eruption in a foreseeable future could be in the making in this area.
To read more and why, please have a look at the brilliant post about it on Dr. Erik Klemetti's Eruptions Blog.
