Volcanic ash cloud 'will miss major airports'

Air travel in parts of Europe is being disrupted slightly by the ash cloud spreading from Iceland's Grimsvotn volcano.

British Airways, KLM, Glasgow-based Loganair and Eastern Airways have cancelled some of their services, while other airlines have continued to fly.

Brian Flynn, deputy head of operations at Eurocontrol, said the ash cloud was expected to move slowly eastwards, but seemed likely to avoid many of Europe's major airports.
