MOTORISTS across Somerset are being advised to take extra care on the roads this Bank Holiday, as the roads are expected to be extremely busy.

Insurance company Age UK is advising drivers to check the details of their car insurance policies before heading out on the roads to ensure it’s the right cover for their needs.

John Alexander of Age UK Somerset said: “It is crucial to read the small print of your policy carefully so you know what is and is not covered, and to ensure you are not paying for any additional elements or fees that can be hidden.”

The company is also recommending drivers arm themselves with a map or satellite navigation should they want to avoid long delays, plus plenty of water to stay refreshed and to check their car is in good condition before setting off.
