Airspace to close in new volcano ash risk

Airspace over Scotland and Northern Ireland will be closed from 0700 BST on Wednesday due to volcanic ash, the Civil Aviation Authority has said.

It comes after flights in and out of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic were grounded for hours on Tuesday.

Ash is drifting from the same Icelandic volcano that caused flights to be halted for six days in April.
