Firefighters in Spain's Canary Islands are still struggling to contain a blaze on La Gomera described by a local official as an "ecological disaster".

On the mainland, two firefighters died at the weekend while helping to extinguish a wildfire in Torremanzanas, a village north of the eastern coastal town of Alicante.
