Text size Aa Aa

Flights were grounded in southern and central Spain, Morocco, Portugal and the Canary Islands as the ash cloud from Iceland swept across the Iberian peninsular on Tuesday.

European air traffic agency Eurocontrol has warned it will move into southeastern France later in the day.

Meanwhile the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is continuing to spew dust and ash into the atmosphere…

Particals in the ash cloud are believed to damage plane engines which has resulted in thousands of flights being disrupted since the volcano started erupting a few weeks ago.
