Cargo piles up due to volcano chaos

Businesses set to lose millions as goods remain stuck in German airport due to flight disruption.

    Many industries worldwide have suffered huge financial losses after airspace across Europe closed down due to a volcanic ash cloud.

    In the German city of Frankfurt - a major trade hub in the world - thousands of tonnes of cargo meant for companies across the globe are stranded at the airport.

    The longer it sits there, the higher the toll on the businesses, which could be in the millions of dollars.
