Second day of ash flight chaos expected

All but a few flights in and out of the UK will remain grounded until 1am on Saturday morning.

The air traffic control company, Nats said the cloud of volcanic ash from the Iceland eruption continued to cover much of the UK and therefore flights would continue to be grounded.

But Nats did say some flights in Northern Ireland and the Western Isles of Scotland to and from Glasgow and Prestwick would continue to be allowed until 7pm today and that some transatlantic flights to and from Glasgow, Prestwick and Belfast could be permitted as well.
