Fast-flowing river of lava pours from La Palma volcano in Canary Islands – video

Hot lava continues to gush from the Spanish Cumbre Vieja volcano. About 300 more people fled their homes early on Thursday as flows of molten rock threatened to engulf another area in La Palma. Emergency crews gave people living between the towns of Tazacorte and La Laguna a few hours to collect their belongings and pets and go to a meeting point. Nearly 600 hectares (1,500 acres) of land and more than 1,000 homes have been destroyed since the eruption began on 19 September
