Ash cloud from Icelandic Volcano trapping Brits Abroad

A well known historian is smuggling Brits. back into Britain under cover of the large ash cloud hailing from Iceland. This endeavour is being carried out 'Dunkirk-style'.

Travellers trapped in Europe first have to make their way, by any means possible, to reach the shores of France where small boats are ferrying them back home across the English Channel. The trip is said to be costing individuals 5 thousand pounds each.

Other Europeans are trying to stop these thousands of Brits. from returning to Britain as they fear for their own economies. Whilst Brits. are on foreign soil they are spending their money, and lots of it.

Checkpoints have been quickly set up at all international borders. Travellers with British passports are being arrested and hoarded onto buses which deliver them to camps. These camps are not free. Brits have to pay for their food water and meager 'lodgings' until such a time as the ash cloud clears and they can fly home.

Hundred of Brits. are flocking to the Chunnel. This is said to be the favoured mode of returning to their Motherland. At the French side they pay a fee to enter the Chunnel, on foot. Half way down the Chunnel they are greeted by fellow Brits who are refunding their fees as a show of solidarity.

It's not known how long the ash cloud will hang around, but meanwhile, Britain needs to get her people home. Businesses are going bankrupt when CEO's don't return from vacations outside of Britain. Schools are closing down when students and teachers are unable to get back from oversea vacations.

Crime is on the upsurge as Police Personnel make up a great percent of the 'travellers stuck abroad'. The Police left in Britain say the Stations are undermanned and they are finding it hard to deal with all calls coming in.

Garbage in Britain is piling up as a result of half of the 'collection crews' are trapped overseas and the remaining crews, although working 24/7, just can't keep up with the workload.

This is indeed a desperate time. Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Navy is discussing sending out the Big Ships to bring their people home. The Airforce is even asking for volunteers to fly through the ash clouds and bring back anyone willing to 'risk it'.

More as this story unfolds.
