Sicily's volcano Mount Etna erupts

Europe's most active volcano, Mount Etna, has begun to spew large plumes of bright orange lava.

Eruptions as high as 100 metres (300 feet) were visible near Sicily and nearby Catania airport was shut for a short time due to the smoke and ash.

Pia Harold reports.
