Volcanic activity from Etna's south-east crater was first recorded at 9.20pm yesterday and within half an hour, the intensity of the blast increased from medium to high.

The crater produced lava fountains of up to 100m high and a dense ash plume rose to an estimated 5km high, according to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Toulouse.

Sandfalls on villages and towns south of the Sicilian volcano have also been reported.

Loud roars have been heard in Calabria as smoke was seen heading towards Catania.

A magnitude 2.7 earthquake was recorded on the slopes of Etna before the blast but it's not known if it was linked.

In the past 24 hours, 17 quakes have been recorded.
