Philippines volcano: Residents return to visit island

In January 2020, Taal volcano erupted in the Philippines, sending a thick column of ash kilometres into the sky.

Thousands of people were evacuated from surrounding areas as seismologists warned of the possibility of further hazardous eruptions.

With the alert level now reduced by the authorities, residents have briefly returned to their homes to search for their loved ones and inspect the damage.

Warning: you may find some of the images in this report distressing.
