British aviation officials on Monday eased a no-fly zone that disrupted flights at London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports after the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland spread over London.

The volcanic ash cloud from Iceland spread over London today, causing the cancellation or delay of hundreds of flights in western Europe.

The ash cloud today covers much of Iceland and stretches southeast over the Faeroe Islands and the northern tip of Scotland. A second ash cloud covers Northern Ireland. A third ash cloud covers south-central England, including London, affecting flights out of Heathrow and Gatwick airports. These two airports are open today but airlines are working through the delays caused by an overnight shutdown.

Passengers departing from those airports were advised to check their airline for updates. (Check updates on flights out of Heathrow and Gatwick.)
