Volcano travel woes to continue until Monday

Travel woes look set to carry on for European air travellers for at least another 24 hours as a volcanic ash cloud wreaks havoc across the continent.

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier started erupting on Wednesday, leading to numerous flight cancellations at airports across Europe.

Most of northern Europe’s airspace has been shut down and only countries in the south are so far unaffected.

Flights are continuing to operate in Spain, Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey.

Weather forecasters in Iceland say strong winds will continue to spread the glacier’s volanic ash over the coming days.

Officials also say the eruptions could continue for several days but will be less volatile.
