London’s roads grind to a halt the night before lockdown as people flee the capital city
Just hours before the country’s second national lockdown comes into effect, the capital’s roads are chock-a-block as people attempt to leave the city.
According to TomTom, congestion levels on Wednesday evening, November 4 are at 102 per cent, a 34 per cent increase on average levels at this time of year. Reports also show that other big cities are seeing a similar exodus, with Birmingham congestion levels at 71 per cent and Liverpool at 59 per cent.
Boris Johnson’s second lockdown is set to last for four weeks and finish on December 2 – a date which the Prime Minister has vowed will not change.
“I know how tough it has been for you and I’m full of admiration for the determination you’ve shown in persevering through this crisis.
“And, believe me, we will end these autumn measures on December 2 when they expire.”
