Planes could be grounded ‘until later in the week’

The Irish Aviation Authority has said it's unlikely that the country's airspace will re-open to commercial flights until later in the week.

The IAA has grounded flights into and out of Ireland until 1 pm tomorrow at the earliest.

The decision is in line with that of several other European countries as the Icelandic volcanic ash disrupts flight plans for thousands of people for a fourth day.
