A statement said: “Please be patient and take an alternative route if possible, or plan extra time into your journey.” Earlier on Sunday, South Wales Police warned that Cardiff will be “extremely busy”.

RAC traffic spokesman Rod Dennis said: “The fact the bank holidays coincide with the end of half-term in many places has the potential to put some extra pressure on the road network, so planning a journey carefully is important to beat the worst of any queues.”

It is not just in Wales where there are delays, Highways England say around 50 minutes are being added to journeys on the M5 as people head home from Devon and Cornwall.
