No flights until 7am: UK airport terminals deserted after giant volcanic ash cloud turns Britain into a no-fly zone

Britain’s airports were deserted this afternoon after an unprecedented airspace lockdown sparked by a deadly cloud of ash from an Icelandic volcano.

With no flights in or out of the UK until at least 7am tomorrow, millions of passengers now face a weekend of chaos.

More than 500,000 passengers a day fly in and out of Britain on around 5,300 flights. Experts say the disruption – which is already spreading across Europe – could last for days
