Drone footage shows path of devastation from La Palma's Cumbre Vieja volcano – video

Drone footage captures the devastation wrought by the Cumbre Vieja volcano, which has been ejecting ash, smoke and lava over the Canary island of La Palma for more than 10 days.

Since erupting on 19 September, the volcano has destroyed more than 800 buildings, as well as banana plantations, roads and other infrastructure.

About 6,000 people have been evacuated and are yet to return to their houses, a local government spokesperson said.
