ICELANDIC VOLCANO ERUPTION - CAUSES DELAYS TO AIRMAIL

Now there's a title I never thought I'd have to write...
Due to the Volcano that erupted in Iceland last Wednesday, there are ash clouds over the UK, and all planes have been grounded in UK airspace. So there is currently no airmail coming in or out of the UK, and some other northern European countries.

So unfortunately there is a delay with international orders (to US, Canada, Australia etc...)
Hopefully flights will start again this week, and the delay will only be a few days *fingers crossed*

Royal Mail’s advice and latest updates can be found online at the link below;

Slightly worrying story in the Mail today
Scientists warn that volcano ash could return 'at any time', causing more travel chaos

  1. It is scary isn't it? I heard they're opening air space tomorrow morning, but it doesn't seem the situation has improved that much.

    I had an international sale myself this weekend, luckily the buyer has been really understanding :)
