Bank holiday travel delays

BANK holiday travellers are being warned of delays as up to 70,000 music fans make their way to Leeds Festival.

The M1 and the A1(M) are expected to be busier than usual near the event site in Bramham, Wetherby.

The busiest times will be Wednesday and Thurday August 24 and 25, with most traffic expected to depart the site by late on the Sunday and before noon on the Monday.

Festival-goers are being urged to use public transport or allow plenty of time for car journeys.
