A massive sandstorm has turned Madeira and the Canary Islands daytime into dusk, disrupting all flights leaving or incoming to be cancelled, leaving thousands of European holidaymakers stranded.

Spain's national weather service said winds of up to 120km/h (75mph) could buffet the Canaries through Monday. It is strong winds that have blasted the islands with a dense cloud of sand from the Saharan desert, some 500km (300 miles) across the Atlantic Ocean.

The Canary Islands, which include Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and La Palma, along with Madeira, situated just 60 miles, 100 km west of Morroco on the northeast coast of Africa are popular with European tourists in search of winter sun.
