One-way system for traffic around Silverstone over Grand Prix weekend
A one-way system will be introduced on roads around the Silverstone circuit ahead of this weekend's British Grand Prix.
Highways England hopes it will help avoid major hold-ups as 340,000 spectators and more than 125,000 vehicles descend on the Northamptonshire village for the Formula 1 event.

The one-way system will be in place on the main A43 and extra traffic officers will patrol the area to help keep traffic moving.
Jamie Tomlin, emergency planning officer for Highways England, urged visitors not to rely on their sat navs - and instead follow signs from the M1 and M40.
This year's British Grand Prix - which was set to have been Silverstone's last before a new five-year deal was announced yesterday - is a sell out.
Around 90,000 vehicles are due to use public parking at the circuit with another 21,000 using the park and ride.
On top of that, 16,000 coaches are expected on site over the three days of the event from Friday July 12 to Sunday July 14.
