Volcanic Ash

Volcanic activity under Eyjafallajokull glacier in Iceland has resulted in a fresh ash plume being pushed about 5.5km into the sky. The ash is causing yet again more problems for the people who live in Northern Ireland, republic of Ireland and some parts of Scotland. Dublin airport has been closed alongside many more across Northern Ireland, the republic of Ireland and Scotland. Edinburgh is one of the two airports in Scotland to have there flights grounded. The current forecast shows that the ash cloud will move towards Aberdeen, Carlisle, Blackpool, Liverpool and Manchester. At the moment, there are no plans to shut any of these airports. Last month, the volcanic ash grounded all flights around the world for six days.

    You’ve chosen a great picture HBL. It’s very dramatic. 😉
    How about a map showing the airports that have been affected?
    I think you’ve done this very well, just a few bits to tidy up – capital letters, punctuation mainly. Read it through and see where you could edit it to make it tighter.
    What could you tag it with to attract more readers?
