Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Stunning footage of smoke and lava spilling out of La Palma volcano” – below is their description.

Just 29 minutes elapsed from the moment the stream of molten rock reached the property’s garden and brought the three-storey villa, on the Spanish island of La Palma, crashing to the ground. Spanish news website NIUS reported the house belonged to a British couple who ‘only visit the island during the winter’. In the footage, a man can be heard screaming: ‘The wall is beginning to break’ in Spanish, as the river of molten rock can be seen creeping closer towards the property. Cracks first started appearing along the outer walls of their home after just 14 minutes, with waves of 1967F (1075C) lava streaming out onto the road in Los Llanos de Aridane and eventually bringing the entire house toppling down. Since September 19, more than 2,000 buildings, and 1,300 homes, have been lost after the Cumbre Vieja volcano first erupted more than a month ago. Approximately 6,000 people have been evacuated from their homes on the island out of a population of some 83,000.
