A huge plume of ash billowed from the glowing peak of the Philippines' most active volcano again and magma continued to move below the ground.

Mayon's unrest has displaced about 75,500 people, the majority of whom are in evacuation centres, where children lined up for meals and parents braced for the possibility of a long stay away from home.

Government offices and schools have been closed in 17 towns and municipalities and 66 flights have been cancelled in recent days.

The provincial government has expanded the danger zone around the 2,462m (8,077ft) volcano to a radius of 9km, up from the Phivolcs-recommended 8km no-go zone.
