Organisers at Silverstone say they are making contingency plans ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix in June to prevent a repeat of last year's event which was marred by the weather.

Some fans were told to stay away from the circuit in Northamptonshire while others faced huge traffic jams and muddy campsites because of flooding.

Work is now being done to improve drainage at the site with more transport options for race-goers.
