Mount Etna eruptions from 'new crater'

Europe's most famous active volcano has been erupting, sending plumes of ash into the air.

The activity at Mount Etna on the island of Sicily was reported to be taking place at a new crater at a height of 2,900m (9,500ft).

It is part of a series of eruptions, but the ash is not thought to have disrupted flights at the nearby Catania airport.
