    DescriptionA photography project has highlighted the extent of ice loss from Iceland's glaciers.

    A team from Scotland and Iceland compared photographs taken in the 1980s with present-day drone images.

    They focused on the south side of the Vatnajökull ice cap, which covers about 7,700sq km of land.

    Dr Kieran Baxter, from the University of Dundee, said: "We saw a staggering difference in a very short amount of time."
