Military clean-up ash from La Palma volcano

Video footage released by Spain's Military Emergency Unit (UME) showed officers removing ash from rooftops and roads while the volcanic eruption showed no sign of abating since it first erupted on September 19.

La Palma local authorities said on Wednesday lava had covered 1,134 hectares ( 2,802 acres) of land so far and the eruption had damaged or destroyed nearly 2,700 buildings, forcing the evacuation of thousands from their homes on the island.
