The Chartist: Eruption disruption

That unpronounceable volcano, by numbers

Clouds of ash, transport chaos and an outraged Jeremy Clarkson: just some of the fallout caused by the erupting Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull over the past week or so. On the plus side, there have been some really nice photos.
