Ash cloud shuts UK airspace - again
A 'rapidly encroaching' volcanic ash cloud has forced part of Britain's skies to close and caused another round of flight disruptions.
Air traffic chiefs have imposed a no-fly zone above parts of Northern Ireland after the 'high density' cloud approached the province from the north west.
Flights to and from Belfast International and Belfast City airports, and Ronaldsway airport on the Isle of Man have been cancelled until at least 1pm.
There are also restrictions on airfields in north west Ireland, air traffic controllers said, but Dublin Airport remains open. No other parts of UK airspace are currently affected.
The Department of Transport has warned about possible flight disruption elsewhere across the UK, lasting perhaps until Tuesday morning, if the ash from the erupting Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull is blown above Britain.
