Travel chaos continues across Europe as ash continues to spread

Millions of air passengers remain stranded as the majority of European airports are forced to close for the third consecutive day. The European Aviation agency has indicated that the ash from the volcano would be likely to continue spreading late into Sunday.

This unprecedented incident is costing the aviation industry roughly £130 million a day as aircraft are forced to remain grounded as a precautionary measure. Around 16,000 out of 22,000 flights were cancelled on Saturday due to fears that ash containing rock, glass and dirt particles could severely damage engines.

The travel ban in the UK has been extended until Sunday morning, where they will then review the situation. However, specialists predict that the ban will be extended further after Sunday.
