La Palma volcano latest: Canary Island flights cancelled with lava to hit sea and spew toxic gas as thousands evacuated

LAVA is set to pour into the sea around La Palma and spew out tonnes of toxic gas as the eruption of La Cumbre Vieja volcano, continues.

Shipping has been suspended in the area around the Canary Islands as a precaution and flights to and from the Canary Islands have been suspended.

Brits have had to flee for their lives and were taken to the nearby island of Tenerife to escape the flames.

Huge red plumes topped with black-and-white smoke shot out, as a river of lava flowed from the La Cumbre Vieja volcano, on La Palma forcing 5,000 people to be evacuated.

Homes have been destroyed as the boiling liquid continues to ooze across the island destroying everything in its path.

Brits planning to travel to and from the luxury holiday destination have been put on alert after the volcanic activity in the last week.
