Christmas getaway begins

The weekend before Christmas is one of the busiest of the year on our roads, railways and at Newcastle Airport.

Thousands of people head off and come home for Christmas

Thousands of people from the North East have started their Christmas breaks - on the road, by rail and by air.

East Coast, who run the main railway line through the region are recommending people allow extra time for their journey.

Anyone who would like to know the latest travel situation should log on to the Highways Agency, National Rail Enquiries or Newcastle International Airport.
