Particles of ash from the volcano in Iceland were today falling across Britain leaving cars and pavements coated in black dust.
Scientists from Sheffield Hallam University scraped up samples of the material and were later able to confirm that it had come from Eyjafjallajökul.
Dr Hywel Jones, consultancy manager of the university's Materials and Engineering Research Institute, spotted the dust on his cycle ride into work.Samples were collected from cars parked in Sheffield Hallam's Science Park.

Now, its ash from a very large fire. All it needs is for a few very brave Icelanders - preferably some bankers, to go and pour some cold water on it to put it out!
that would make it worse. Its the volcano melting the glazier that is enabling water to pour in and create such violent ash /steam to erupt.

The Met Office reported that ash from Eyjafjallajokull had settled over much of Britain, with a thin coating detected at its monitoring stations in the North, the Midlands and the Thames Valley.
It said: "Evidence of ash dust over the UK is being detected by Met Office observations and there are reports of dust reaching the ground."
The British Lung Foundation advised people with a lung condition to carry their medication as a precaution as they may experience short-term worsening of symptoms. However it stressed that the ash does not pose a significant health risk to the public.
There were reports lst night of cars as far afield as Heathrow and north Wales covered in a fine coating of the dust

I have a strong feeling that this is THE BEGINNING OF AN END FOR EUROPE. THIS VOLCANO AND PERHAPS MORE OTHERS SOON WILL MAKE EUROPE UNINHABITABLE.
If you're in Europe, I recommend you get out of there ASAP if you don't want to suffocate to death.
The ash will build up more and more, your water supply and livestock will be poisoned. famines, etc will follow. get out to Asia, Africa or North/South America. if you wait longer, they won't save you or accept you in their borders.
there are many prophesies of Europe being flooded and uninhabitable. Save yourself and your family before its too late and run away to another continent or Russia/Asia while you still can and while it's possible to cross the border.
