Sandstorm hits Canaries

A sandstorm is currently affecting Fuerteventura and Lanzarote locally known as a Calima which has made conditions difficult for holidaymakers and travel.

With the Saharan dust likely to spread across the rest of the Canaries over the coming days, it means some flights have already been cancelled or diverted.

Fuerteventura, Lanazarote and Gran Canaria are said to have been the worst hit by the storms, which have caused reduced visibility on the islands.
