I thought it was just the planes... Seems like the roads and rail network have collapsed too. My train in from Reading to London took twice the time it normally does to get in this morning and BBC News 24 says roads are clogged up nationwide as the country becomes gridlocked in pre-Christmas panic. My sister-in law was heading off to Germany this morning and stayed at our place last night - with father-in-law due to be ferrying her from our house to Heathrow this morning they'll be hoping the M4 jams didn't get in their way.
Luckily this will be the first Christmas we aren't doing the gumball rally visiting every relative under the sun over the Christmas period, so I'm hoping we won't be too affected. Here's hoping for a white Christmas.
