Latest satellite image of Iceland ash cloud. Impact will continue for next 24 hours

The main volcanic ash cloud is the bright orange plume being carried eastwards from southern Iceland. This is colour composite image and the colours do not correspond to the actual colours that would be seen by the human eye.

The latest satellite imagery is showing a plume between 20,000 and 30,000 ft over the North Sea and Denmark. Episodic thin plumes of volcanic ash have been detected over the UK overnight. We will continue to monitor during the day.

Much of the airspace across northern and western Europe has been closed, and air control officials said some 17,000 flights would be cancelled on Friday. Hundreds of thousands of passengers in Europe and around the world have been affected.

Scientists say the volcano is still erupting but producing less ash. "Forecasts suggest that the cloud of volcanic ash is continuing to move east and south-east and that the impact will continue for at least the next 24 hours," it said in a statement.
