Warning issued after Chilean eruption

A fresh travel warning has been issued after the Calbuco volcano in southern Chile erupted for a third time in eight days.

The latest eruption led to the evacuation of 2,500 people, some who had just returned to their homes following the previous eruptions.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed that the Chilean government had ordered the evacuation to 20km away from the crater of the volcano.

The local Osorno airport was shut as a preventative measure although all other national and international flights are operating as normal.

“However, we encourage British Nationals travelling around or to this area to check the status of their flights with the airline,” the FCO said.
