Busiest day for travel as thousands expected to get away for Christmas

Thousands of people are expected to travel out of the region today for a Christmas getaway.

Festive chaos is predicted on the region's roads, rail and air routes.

The AA say today is the busiest day of the year on the roads and CrossCountry train services through Leeds, Sheffield and York are expected to be disrupted due to strike action by the RMT union.
