Holidaymakers will face long delays today as they head back from their short breaks after the Bank Holiday and can expect severe disruption tomorrow due to rail strikes. AA Roadwatch warned motorists to stagger their journeys home to prevent long traffic jams clogging the motorway network.

The exodus to the coast on Friday saw lengthy delays on all major routes to holiday destinations and tomorrow's threatened rail strike will bring little comfort to those heading back to work after the holiday.

Poor weather blighted the weekend as rain swept many areas and winds lowered temperatures.
