5,000 people have been evacuated.

100 homes have been destroyed and 5,000 people evacuated after the Canary Islands' first volcanic eruption in half a century.

Molten rock from the eruption in La Palma is expected to reach the sea later today, which is likely to trigger more explosions and the release of toxic gases.

The volcano began erupting on Sunday.

Cliona O'Flynn, an Irish journalist based in the Canaries, says eruptions could go on for weeks
