ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The world's most active volcano on the Mediterranean island of Sicily has been putting on an impressive display over the last few days. The volcano has been largely dormant for the last two years and the recent eruptions have brought many volcano "tourists" out to spend the night on the side of the mountain to watch the show.

Etna, at 3,330 metres (10,926 feet) is the highest volcano in mainland Europe and the most active in the world.
