School children walk as Mount Sinabung erupts in Karo, North Sumatra, Indonesia. Rumbling Mount Sinabung on the Indonesian island of Sumatra has shot billowing columns of ash more than 5,000 meters into the atmosphere and hot clouds down its slopes. The volcano, one of three currently erupting in Indonesia, was dormant for four centuries before exploding in 2010.

Westminster Abbey basks in glorious sunshines as Britain could be hit by a fresh blast of freezing temperatures after a “Sudden Stratospheric Warming” of the earth’s atmosphere. The disturbance, which happened in the past few days, is associated with low temperatures and “greatly increases the risk of wintry weather”, the Met Office said.

Leake Street Tunnel turns red for Valentine’s Day to offer an alternative romantic walk for Londoners. As the location for Banksy’s infamous Cans Festival in 2008, which saw over 150 artists from around the world descend on the tunnel for a weekend paint jam, the 300 metre Leake Street Tunnel provides wall space for graffiti artists to leave their mark and has become an ever-changing urban art gallery. #ValentinesDay #Love

Great Britain's flag is seen during the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at the Pyeongchang Stadium. The theme for the ceremony in South Korea is peace - a fitting topic seeing as North and South Korea have agreed to march under one flag in the ceremony. Skeleton gold winner at the Sochi games in 2014, Lizzy Yarnold, was named Team GB’s flag bearer earlier this week, and she will lead the 58-strong Great British squad out at today’s Parade of Nations.

But it was 100 years ago this year that the women's rights movement in the UK finally got a bit of traction. On February 6, 1918 the Representation of the People Act was passed which gave women the vote.
