Lava spews from La Palma volcano as eruptions enter fifth day.

The Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma entered its fifth day of eruption on Thursday.

VILLAGERS in La Palma were given just an HOUR to escape after a fresh eruption threatened to destroy more homes and release a toxic gas bomb.

Locals in the town of Todoque were told to grab any valuable they could and escape as the lava continues its slow, deadly ooze towards the sea.

Authorities warned when the lava hits the sea, it will create explosions and clouds of toxic gases as it cools rapidly - causing further damage to the health and homes of locals.

It came after a second earthquake hit the Canary Islands as the eruption of La Cumbre Vieja volcano continues.

The new 3.8 magnitude quake caused yet more lava to spew from the erupting volcano, although the flow is now moving through the island at a slower rate than it previously was.
