2 Light A/c Circling Near MAN This Morning

I was driving into Manchester this morning and at around 08.30 I noticed 2 small aircraft flying approx 7 miles east of MAN

They were very close together at around 1000ft. I'm not well up on light a/c but they resembled c172's.

Does anyone know what they would be doing when the volcanic ash situation has forced a no-fly situation?

Many thanks in anticipation.

I was walking to the bus, due north of Manchester at around 8.15, and a trio of microlights were heading in that general direction, possibly from Barton. A flexwing, a Jabiru and one other I couldn't identify.

It's not a no-fly situation. It's a no IFR clearance situation. VFR can still be done at your own risk.
