Travel Chaos In UK
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

Britain's transport network is already in chaos as the busiest day of the Christmas getaway got off to the worse possible start with major disruption at one of London's main railway stations.

A signal failure outside Paddington Station means there are no trains to Heathrow at all and almost every train to Wales and the south-west is delayed by up to an hour; half have been cancelled.

This will cause huge problems at Heathrow as the exodus there will peak today, with 123,000 passengers set to depart from the west London airport - if they can get there.

Problems at Paddington will continue until at least 3pm as at least four million people all over the UK attempt to get away for Christmas on the busiest travel day of the year.

A fire near Brighton is also affecting rail services to Gatwick Airport.

Just wait until the "wrong kind of snow" falls on the railway lines!

Nightmare.

I feel for all those affected. With more rain coming tomorrow and Monday, things aren't going to get better I'm afraid.

Truth that getting your christmas shopping done early is always a good idea.

It wasn't THAT chaotic.
Hour or two delay, that was about it.
