Three more towns have been evacuated on the island of La Palma in the Canaries amid “intensifying volcanic activity”, emergency services say.

Authorities ordered the evacuation of the towns of Tajuya, Tacande de Abajo and the part of Tacande de Arriba that
had not already been evacuated due to a volcanic eruption, emergency services said.

Residents in those towns were initially told to stay indoors but emergency services decided to take more serious precautions due to increased volcanic activity.

Firefighters on La Palma have also retreated due to intensifying volcanic explosions.
