More ash cloud problems today


Airports in Scotland and Northern Ireland closed this morning from 07:00 because of risks from volcanic ash, with airports in the north of England also at risk of closure. Glasgow, Prestwick and Derry airports are likely to be closed all day, while there are plans to shut Inverness in the morning only, and Belfast in the afternoon.

Edinburgh is currently open, but the situation in the skies has been changing hour by hour, meaning the picture for air travellers is unclear. Forecasts suggest that the 60 nautical mile buffer zone imposed around high concentrations of ash is close to some airports in northern England. The CAA advised passengers to check with their airline before travelling.

The latest airport closures come as a Government adviser warned that passengers could face further random disruption from volcanic ash in the coming months. Bill McGuire, a volcano expert and member of the Government's Cobra emergency committee, said the volcano could cause problems for up to a year, even though its explosions had become less intense. He said: ‘It hasn't gone away. Previous eruptions have emerged over a year, so it can carry on for a long time.’
