The Silverstone race track has tweeted to motorists struck in traffic jams heading for the British Grand Prix:
"To all who are stuck in traffic, we are trying our best to get everyone on site. We have a major problem with traffic going to campsites along the Dadford Road which are full, if you have not prebooked please do not attempt to camp at these sites.
Those of you that are here already we are doing our best to relocate you. If you are stuck in traffic we are doing all we can to get you in and parked up asap, we are sincerely sorry for the delay."
