One traveller said police had been called to a bus stop after the driver refused to move because the vehicle was so full.

A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police said that while he was not aware of any reports, it would "make sense" with such large crowds in different areas today for them to factor any disruption into their policing.

Others said the roads were "mental" and many posted online details of their preparation to get to work.
