HPA issues volcanic ash advice

Comment

If this ash is termed as 'harmless' - after all it's been said that it is also carrying pieces of silicone etc., how does this not count as dangerous? Shouldn't the World Health Organisation be starting to get involved? Secondly, how do the experts know it won't last more than 'a short time' and what is termed 'as a short time'? There has been evidence in the past that this type of event could last as much as a year.
