A Leeds based Documentary maker has returned to her home in Monserrat, which she fled from at the age of six, after it was devastated by a volcanic eruption, itv.com reports.
Jonnel Benjamin left the island along with her family and has lived in Leeds since.
She returned to find about the home and friends she left behind.
Her film explores how the island has moved on since the eruption in 1995, and probes into how much knew about the impending threat, and if more could have been done to help the inhabitants escape.
