Staycations are on the rise this bank holiday

Why would you want to go anywhere else? The staycation economy has become one of the strongest in the UK as holidaymakers spend more time and money on local shores, according to a report.

Some 70% of UK adults have been on or are planning a staycation - a rise of 7% - and are spending an average 6% more per holiday than a year ago, the survey from Barclays Business found.

The news comes as over five million people are said to be heading off for a great British getaway this weekend - leading to 'Carmaggedon' on the roads and the worst congestion seen for years.

It's the long-suffering seaside towns that will bear the brunt of the influx of British tourist.
