Calbuco volcano: Timelapse footage of Chile eruption

The Calbuco volcano in southern Chile has erupted twice in the space of a few hours - having lain dormant for decades.

Timelapse footage from the area shows a huge column of lava and ash being sent several kilometres into the air.

The authorities have declared a red alert and evacuated more than 4,000 people within a 20km (12 mile) radius.
