A large toxic cloud of orange smoke rose above large areas of northern Spain today following an explosion at a chemical factory in the Catalonia region.
More than 40,000 people in the immediate area surrounding the site in the northern town of Igualada, and in neighbouring towns, were urged to stay indoors and keep their doors and windows closed until the worst of the smoke cleared.
Regional government officials said they believed the explosion had been caused by two volatile chemicals coming into contact during a delivery at the factory.
Video footage, captured on a mobile phone's camera, has shown the dramatic aftermath of a chemical factory explosion in Spain's Catalonia region.
In the 43 second clip, released by David Orta, clouds of toxic orange and yellow smoke can be seen billowing into the sky in the distance above a motorway.

Tens of thousands of people have flooded the centre of Madrid in a rally for the far-left party Podemos, a party formed just a year ago which is currently topping opinion polls in the run up to local, regional and national elections this year.
People are fed up with the political class
Last week, Alexis Tsipras swept into victory on a wave of anti-austerity anger in Greece. He said he hoped voters across Europe would be inspired by Greece to break the "vicious cycle of austerity". Speaking shortly after his election he said:
First we talk Athens, then we take Madrid.
Tens of thousands of people turned out to take part in a march organised by Spain's anti-austerity party Podemos today.
Chanting "yes we can" and "tic tac tic tac" the gathered protesters were supporting Podemos' call for political change in light of the country's struggling economy.
