TRAVEL LINKS

It just took me 5 hours to get home, there is very very little public transport running, but we got an awful lot of snow in a very short period of time which won't have helped at all.

The journey from London on virgin was fine, which is positive, the problems started once I got here. Had to wait an awful long time for a taxi who wouldnt take all the way home.

If anyone is seriously considering driving its worthwhile checking the available motorway webcams leading into Liverpool before you travel

If you can view via a UK IP address its worth watching the latest Forecast Video on the right hand side of the page at http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/342 (Liverpool)
All domestic and European flights run by British Airways from Gatwick between 10:00-17:00 have been cancelled. (http://www.britishairways.com/travel/flightops/public/en_gb?p_faqid=4120)

In Southport which is half an hour north of Liverpool. Been hammering down with snow for hours, stuck the tape measure in the ground and its over 7 inches and is forecast to keep snowing until Tuesday. If the gig goes ahead I can't see how I could get there.

So glad you got home ok (finally) Mich :)

Is that site accurate now? Last time they got into quite a lot of trouble because it was so inaccurate (showing trains running when there weren't any etc) :(

Really hope you make it if the gig's on :)

Maybe it was only Kent last time, I don't know how bad the snow was in other areas, but yeah it was a huge problem. Even the night at the Dublin Castle after the boat (the week before the snow) it showed a perfect service from here to London when there wasn't one...

ANYWAY it's great to hear it was accurate today for London to Liverpool, that's the main thing for everyone now, thanks a lot :)

Some of these posts made me really worried for your guys - in particular in relation to the travel to Liverpool and Newcastle by plane and/or train.

I hope that you are all succeeding in going to these gigs and arriving there safe and sound.

When you are finally there, I bet that Coldplay will make sure that you are forgetting about the problems getting there playing:

TROUBLE making you SHIVER and feeling LOST, but look at all the CHRISTMAS LIGHTS and remember VIVA LA VIDA.


So: Don't Panic - Everything is not lost :thumbsup: :awesome:


AND remember: TAKE CARE OUT THERE !

Dilema

I need your help!! If I manage to get to the gig (with all the snow around) I have a dilema and I am not sure what course of action to take! I know there was a maximum of 2 tickets per transaction/person for the gig. I managed to secure 4 tickets in 2 separate transactions. So I now have 2 email verifications both registered to me. In terms of picking up the tickets - should I go to the box office with 2 emails and my card and ID - and pick up all 4 tickets at the same time. Or might I be informed that I have illegally purchased over the allocated amount? Or should I go up twice with individual email confirmations and pick tp the tickets separately??? AGGGHHH - I am so worried abot this.
So lucking forward to seeing fellow Coldplayers at the gig - but any advice really appreciated!!!!

Good luck everyone on getting to the gig, I hope everyone makes it safely. If you're planning of coming from south to north-- it is snowing in the south now (not very much) but it is causing delays on trains... It is also expected to worsen down here as the day progresses, so you may find yourself stuck up there for a bit.

I'm surprised how early the text message came through. I was expecting to be sat at the computer all night waiting for an email message to arrive.

I'm a little concerned about the weather but looking at the BBC forecast for Liverpool, it looks to be just cold and icy, but no snow. Touching wood, there's no problems with my train line (Nottingham, Chesterfield, Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool) but we all know how quickly it can change.

I already missed one show because of the bad weather, I'll be damned if I miss a second!

Ice that freezes compacted snow can make things worse though.

Min temperature tonight is -10! Eek!
