Spectacular explosions as Mexican volcano erupts

Footage has emerged of the Colima Volcano in Mexico erupting.

Three consecutive explosions were caught on camera, as smoke and ash were spewed 2,000 metres into the sky.

This is the latest of several eruptions this year for the Colima Volcano, the most recent occurring in July.

Since then the active volcano has continued to show signs of imminent activity.

Situated on the west coast of Mexico, straddling the states of Colima and Jalisco, the volcano is the one of the most active in Mexico and North America.

It is believed to have erupted more than 40 times since 1576.

Its largest eruption in recent times occurred on 24th May 2005, when an ash cloud rose to more than 3 km over the volcano.

Volcan de Colima, as it is known in Spanish, is the youngest of three volcanos making up the Colima Volcanic Complex.
