It's a sunny Sunday in August.

And unsurprisingly, a large number of families from Leeds and York have headed for the coast.

There are three-mile queues reported on the A64 eastbound from the Hopgrove roundabout, near York, towards Scarborough this morning.

The Yorkshire Air Museum even posted a cheeky video of the tailbacks on social media, suggesting beachgoers heading for the Elvington attraction instead.
