Travel alert: 18 January 2013

A snowstorm is affecting travel across parts of the UK today. These are the areas that are affected at the moment: East of England, London and the South, the Midlands, parts of Wales, the North West and Northern Ireland. There is even a Red Alert warning from the Met Office. So our advice is: avoid all but absolutely essential travel. If you are on the move, check rail and bus services are running and as we mentioned, check with your airport before leaving the house. Or you could just grab a cup of hot chocolate and have a look at PurpleTravel.co.uk to find the only cure for a snowstorm: sunshine.
