UK Flights cancelled due to volcanic ash cloud

Ash from a volcano in Iceland is creating problems for air travel in the United Kingdom (UK). A huge ash cloud from the volcano is drifting (slowly traveling) towards the UK. This has already caused around 250 flights in the UK to be canceled on Tuesday.

This is very similar to what happened last year when volcanic ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland halted air travel in the UK and nearby countries.
