More than 300 homes have been destroyed on La Palma following the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

The volcano is located on one of Spain’s Canary Islands.

The eruption caused molten rock to spill into residential areas last week.

It created a huge ash cloud and then a crack in the volcano’s side caused four earthquakes to hit the island earlier this week.

Lava has now covered around 1 sq km of land and nobody can do anything to stop it.

In total over 6000 homes have now been evacuated with emergency shelters being set up for the residents.

Local people from four villages have been asked to pack their essential belongings and move to safer areas.

Scientists are unsure how long this eruption will last, but there are now concerns about what will happen if the lava reaches the sea.

The last time the Cumbre Vieja volcano erupted was 50 years ago in 1971.
