I am a resident of Lancaster, Lancashire and what a weekend we have just had, the city might as well have been shut down for the weekend and we have 3 more if them to come, I don't think I will have any hair left after I've pulled it all out, it was taking hours to drive into Lancaster on Saturday and the motorway was at a standstill, people were lowering bottles of water to drivers who were stuck on the motorway for hours without any refreshment, I understand these things have to be done on the motorway system but four weekends on the trot we are just getting over covid in the country and city and then have to have four weekends of our best two trading days taken away from us is a joke and not to mention the drivers who some had an extra 8 hours added on to there commute and all the extra exhaust fumes. Lancaster University starts back in a few weeks and we are expecting an Influx of parents dropping there children of, they will be expecting to drop there kids of and either stop for a few hours or go straight back, they might be able to leave the city on Monday morning, is rhere any chance this could be rethought we can cope with night time closures but four weekends of full closures in a row is to much, this was affecting the whole of the North of England, people in Kendal, Barrow, Penrith, Carlisle and other places were massively affected, thanks
