The Met Office has been in "close contact" with Iceland's Meterological Office, after it issued a red alert for the country's Bardabunga volcano which began erupting today. A spokeswoman said:
We are in close contact with the Icelandic Met Office, but currently they tell us that the eruptions are sub-glacial, so no ash has made it to the surface.
If ash does make it to the surface, we will run our model which will indicate where any ash would go, and we will inform the CAA and Nats. They will then make the decision on how that will affect any air flights.
