The latest forecast from the Met Office[1] shows that a dense cloud of Volcanic ash will reach across Scotland and towards Scandinavia.

If the volcanic eruption continues at it’s current intensity up to midday on Wednesday, an incoming area of low pressure could cause the ash to blow down and across into North West Spain, and possible Southern England.

With this news comes the announcement from British Airways that it has cancelled some flights.

Following forecasts of significant volcanic ash in Scottish airspace, British Airways has decided as a precaution that it will not operate any flights between London and Scotland on Tuesday May 24 that arrive in Scotland before 2pm or depart from Scotland before 2pm.
