Spain minister encourages tourists to visit volcano – but branded 'totally inappropriate'

1 min read


The volcano has so far destroyed around 100 houses as the lava decimates everything in its path.

A new stream of lava erupted from the Canary Island volcano late on Monday, leading to the evacuation of residents in another nearby town, El Paso.

There have been no fatalities or injuries reported but over 5,000 people have been evacuated as the eruption continues.

Tourists have been leaving the island with most in a rush to get home. One person however enjoyed the eruption, saying: “I felt like a little child inside, very excited. It was also my birthday yesterday, so it was sort of a candle on the island cake!”
