Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Drone footage of thick black lava swallowing La Palma landscape” – below is their description.

Several new volcanic vents have opened up on the Spanish island of La Palma, releasing new lava that is speeding down a ridge and threatening to widen the damage to evacuated land, roads and homes, authorities said last night.

The molten rock coming out from the main new vent was very fluid and was advancing at a speed of 20ft per minute towards areas unspoiled until now, said María José Blanco, a spokeswoman for Spain’s National Geographic Institute.

The eruption on the island, which lies on the western end of the Canary Islands archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, began on September 19.
