Ash from Iceland's most active volcano may reach north Scotland by Tuesday, sweeping through Britain to hit France and Spain Thursday if the eruption does not die down, air safety officials said.

The ash cloud was expected in northern Scotland by Tuesday, the European air safety organisation EUROCONTROL said in a statement Sunday.

"If volcanic emissions continue with the same intensity, the cloud may reach west French airspace and north Spain on Thursday ...," it added.
