EVERY volcanic ash cloud has a silver lining.
For supply teaching company Stafflex on Wakefield Road, the airspace restrictions have resulted in a “significant” rise in demand for teachers and support staff.
Managing director, Brian Stahelin said: “I’m unable to provide exact figures yet but there has definitely been an upturn.
“A lot of teachers are stranded abroad and there has been demand for the whole of this week. This may change if people start coming home.
“This will affect general industry and lots of supply agencies will be affected.
“It should be remembered it can also affect us. We do have one member of staff who can’t get back too.”
