    This from BBC News:

    "The UK is experiencing its fourth day as a virtual no-fly zone due to volcanic ash drifting from Iceland, leaving thousands of Britons stranded.
    Flight restrictions have been extended until at least 0700 BST on Monday and forecasters say the ash cloud could remain over the UK for many more days.
    Transport Secretary Lord Adonis said safety came first and the signs for Monday were "not encouraging".
    Several countries including the UK are carrying out test flights.
    Planes were first grounded in the UK at midday on Thursday amid fears that particles in the ash cloud generated by the volcanic eruption could cause engines to shut down.

    Airspace closed:
    Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK

    Partial closures:
    Italy (northern airspace closed until Monday)
    Norway (limited flights in north)
    Spain (northern airports closed)
