QUESTIONABLE weather, busy roads and disrupted train journeys. Yes, it must be another Bank Holiday. More than two million Britons will head overseas in the next few days, 7,000 from Bournemouth Airport apparently.

Anyone staying behind and taking their car out will have to contend with around nine million other vehicles. It isn’t this weekend that’s important though, but the following one with the the seventh Bournemouth Air Festival.

It starts a week today and promises much including four consecutive days of the Red Arrows. The countdown has begun.
