DRIVERS coming to Cirencester today must be prepared for their journey to take a bit longer than usual, due to heavy traffic heading to the Cotswold Show.

The Cotswold Show is in full swing this weekend in Cirencester Park. The annual show features a food festival, animal parades, a tractor show, stalls and fun family attractions.

Traffic is currently backed up on Tetbury Road, Bristol Road and the A419 near Tesco Extra.

Drivers not heading to the show today are urged to take a different route if they can, to avoid traffic.
