August bank holiday disruption expected on UK's railways and roads
Rail engineering works, station closures and road congestion to hit the millions of Britons planning domestic breaks
People travelling over the bank holiday weekend are expected to be hit by delays and cancellations as millions take to the roads and record levels of engineering works affect rail lines in and out of the capital.
The proportion of Britons planning an overnight UK trip this weekend has risen by more than a third compared with last year. About 6.9 million adults are planning a domestic break over the last long weekend before Christmas, up from 5.1 million, according to VisitEngland, the official tourist board.
