Airspace across Northern UK to reopen tomorrow
Woot! The BBC is reporting that airspace above Scotland, Northern Ireland and parts of northern England is due to reopen tomorrow morning. The air traffic control body, Nats is stating that airspace south to a line 'between Teesside and Blackpool' will reopen from 7am. Nats is also saying restrictions to airspace above the rest of England and Wales could be lifted later on Tuesday.
In a statement, Nats stated:
"The volcanic eruption has reduced and the volcano is not currently emitting ash to altitudes that will affect the UK. Assuming there are no further significant ash emissions, we are now looking at a continuously improving situation. This is a dynamic and changing situation and is therefore difficult to forecast beyond 0700 local."
