I think it's called a traffic jam Paul....... Very popular in Summer, especially Bank Holidays.

No, not really, its all the time. was driving back at 2am in the morning and got stuck for an hour. Also, it;s worse, as night works have you leaving at Jct 5 to drive though the city to rejoin at jct 6

After crashing through the gable end of a thankfully empty cottage, it appears one of the crew attempted an ejection rather late, and both he and his seat were found in a field several hundred meters away from the area of the impact.

A late ejection with a happier ending occurred near Bury St. Edmunds around 1980. I was talking to a farmer whose field I'd arrived on in a glider, having found the ground too close to my backside and not found any lift and he mentioned that his field seemed popular as 2 RAF aircrew had both landed in the same field a few weeks earlier after ejecting from their burning Hunter trainer...so low that the canopy had also landed in the same field!

I realise that we are getting off the topic but I'm reminded of something. In Germany they used to say that if you want a Starfighter just buy a field and wait.

My favourite bit of road near Shap is the concrete road that climbs up to Shap through Keld from Haweswater. It's not strictly a right of way and was built for the traffic building the reservoir but I've never had a problem cycling up it and it's a lovely quiet ride.

I am a biker.these are hard to beat

The Antrim coast road in Northern Island

The A 537 to the Cat and Fiddle in the Peak District. NB This can be aggresively policed especially on Sundays.

My favorite is the A470, Cardiff to Llandudno, Wales
