Traffic delay warning at Download Festival

Organisers of a rock music festival in the East Midlands have warned motorists to expect traffic delays in the area.

The Download Festival at Donington Park in Leicestershire, which runs from 11-13 June, attracts thousands of fans.

Major roads and motorways leading to Donington Park are likely to be busy until Monday, organisers said.

People travelling from East Midlands Airport have been advised to arrive at least two hours prior to departure to allow for possible delays.

A one-way traffic system will be in place from the Donington Park exit to the A453 and also to the A42 after the end of the festival.

Signed diversion routes will be in place.
