Across north Norfolk people are reporting finding a thin layer of dust on their cars which could be linked to the volcano eruption in Iceland.

Francis Farrow, 61, who lives in Havelock Road Sheringham, reported finding little greyish particles of ash on the cars parked in his driveway on Saturday morning , which he believes was volcanic ash.

He said: 'We had four cars parked in our drive and they all had a dusting of greyish dust on them. The van opposite also had the same thing.

'I scrapped some off on my finger and when I put it under a microscope I could see there were clear particles in it and they were very angular, which seems to suggest volcanic ash.'
