Watch live: La Palma volcano eruption

People on the Spanish island of La Palma have been urged to stay indoors due to toxic gas fears after lava from an erupting volcano reached the Atlantic Ocean.

Scientists have warned of breathing difficulties and irritation to eyes and skin due to the chemical reaction caused by the lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano reaching the sea.

The red-hot current has a temperature of more than 1,000C (1,832F) as it meets the ocean, which is around 20C (68F).
