The Christmas Get-Away

Today is expected to be one of the busiest travel days of the year as people rush to getaway for the Christmas break.

Most schools in the region break up today and with Christmas and New Year falling mid-week many will be taking a two week break.

But the AA predict it wont be as busy as last year as the usual getaway traffic should be spread over the next few days.
