Right, I probably don't want to know this advance but I'll ask anyway, if anyone drove yesterday, how bad was it to get out of the car park?

I could expect an hour but 2 hours is rediculous lol. It'll only take me 30 mins to get home once I'm out of the car park so it still shouldn't be too late. Booked tomorrow off work anyway so I'm prepared for it.

Once I'd found out where the hell I was, and the route back to the station, it only took about 15 minutes. HOARDS of people going there.
