Ash from Iceland Volcano Causes Closure of British Airports - Video

Here is video from Sky News on the closure of all United Kingdom Airports as a result of volcanic ash from a volcano in Iceland.
All UK airports - including Gatwick and Heathrow - have been closed after a massive cloud of ash from a volcano in Iceland drifted into UK airspace.

Thousands of flights across the UK have been cancelled causing disruption for hundreds of thousands of passengers.

It is the largest-scale closure of British airspace ever, aviation officials say.

Gatwick and Heathrow alone normally cater for 260,000 passengers a day.

Airspace in Belgium, Germany, Scandinavia, Germany and Ireland has also been closed. . . . . . . MORE
