The Philippines' most active volcano has exploded for the second time today, spewing more molten lava and steam into the air and forcing more than 56,000 residents to flee.

The footage, captured from a village nearby, shows a huge ash plume shooting up to the sky moments after the explosion.

Authorities on Monday raised the alert level to four on a scale of five- meaning a hazardous eruption is possible within hours or days.

Mount Mayon has erupted about 50 times in the last 500 years, reports say.
