London prepares for long break

With Easter and the Royal Wedding around the corner for thousands of Londoners the big double bank holiday getaway begins later.

If you're on the roads the AA reckons a tank of petrol will cost almost £7.50 more than this time last year.

But some good news for the M1 - after the fire at a scrapyard underneath the motorway at Mill Hill last week - it's fully reopened this morning.

If you're taking the train - almost a fifth more services will be running - but engineering is going to affect some journeys.

Stay with London's Heart for travel updates throughout the break.
