A video of two tourists climbing one of the protected volcanic cones at Timanfaya has caused concern.

It appears that the two tourists left the vehicle on the approach to the the Montañas de Fuego tourists centre, to clamber up a volcano. As they climb, they can be seen picking up lava.

It is not known whether they tourists were approached or identified by staff at the park.

However, it’s the latest in a series of incidents in which tourists have been accused of ignoring rules, often for the sake of a selfie.
