Ive heard it has effected air travel due to it being dangerous for planes to fly through the cloud as it is in the flight path to North America from europe, not sure if the "cloud" will actually effect people on the ground directly though think

The latest is, no flights allowed in to British air space from midday. So it must be getting worse.

The ash on the ground will be minimal, it is very spread out and pretty much staying up there in the lower jet-stream. The reason the aircraft can't fly through it is because of the very high temperature in the engines melting it onto internal surfaces, the extreme quantity of air passing through the engines (up to about 100,000 cubic metres per second) means even a small density of ash can accumulate significant quantities.

100% right Paul. If they start grumbling all their foreign-type mumbo jumbo about it - send in the gun boats. That'll keep the blighters quiet !

Now, where did I put my G & T ??
