SAR teams have been called out to Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, East Iceland, to rescue a group of tourists stuck on an iceberg which has drifted away from the shore. 

According to reports, around 40 - 50 tourists are on the iceberg. They are not considered to be in immediate danger and it shouldn't take the rescue teams long to reach them. 

Earlier this week we reported tourists hopping between icebergs at the same spot.
