The volcanic eruption on the Spanish island of La Palma has intensified, two weeks after it first erupted.
Lava continued to flow from the Cumbre Vieja volcano, after part of the crater collapsed unleashing a cascade of faster-moving lava.
The more fluid lava followed the same course as previous molten rock which has now hardened, filling up gaps and spilling over the sides into surrounding countryside.
The volcano has so far emitted already more than double of melted rocks than the amount in the island’s last eruption, in 1971.
