Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy continues erupting on Wednesday with fountains of lava. The panel of experts who keep an eye on these volcanoes have deemed this latest eruption as not being risky, but are monitoring the situation closely.

Coming to life again on Monday evening, with bright orange lava spewing from its 3,330m-high peak, it's light display is the most stunning it has ever been.

Etna's last major eruption was in 1992 when two streams of lava threatened the village of Zafferana.
