I’ve been searching through the news stories, and these are the top 7 stories you need to know from the past week...

1. Eyjafjallajokull Causes Chaos

(Your reaction) Thank you!

On the 20th March 2010, an Icelandic volcano started to erupt. Not too exciting, right? Well, the aftermath certainly was! A plume of ash reached the United Kingdom on the 14th April, and on the 15th, completely halted air travel in the UK. More than 20 European countries closed their airspace for 5 days, causing travel chaos, and leaving travellers stranded all over the World. Well, after the logistical nightmare of getting my sister and her friends home from a late deal holiday to France, I’m glad to report that European airspace is now open, and Eyjafjallajokull seems to be behaving itself. Phew.
