    In same BBC article ;

    "The ash in Grimsvotn is more coarse and not as likely to cause danger as it falls to the ground faster and doesn't stay as long in the air as in the Eyjafjallajokull eruption."
    Domestic airline Icelandair said no traffic had been affected.

    Latest forecasts on the Plume / vulcano cloud

    Latest according to Sky News is that if the plume continues at its current intensity it'll reach northern Scotland by Tuesday, with the rest of the United Kingdom, France and possibly Spain by Thursday / Friday.
