The four-day Easter weekend has arrived, and thousands of Cambridgeshire sun seekers set out on the roads in search of a bank holiday getaway.

There were Good Friday traffic jams in hotspots throughout the county.

On the A47, traffic was slow moving for five miles eastbound between the Guyhirn Interchange and Wisbech, according to National Highways.

It was one of several traffic hotspots on the main road between Peterborough and King's Lynn, on the Norfolk coast.

The delays cleared at around 2.30pm.

There was congestion at the Black Cat roundabout near St Neots, with minor delays on the A421 and A1 northbound, which has since cleared.
