Video footage has captured a mass eruption from an active volcano in Mexico.

Popocatépetl is located some 70kms south-east of the capital, Mexico City.

It is widely seen as the most active volcano in the country.

Yesterday an explosion at the crater blew ash and lava into the air.

It is reported to be the biggest explosion there in three years.
