Motorists are being warned roads in Southampton will be busy this weekend as thousands of cruise passengers, football fans and visitors head to the city.

Oktoberfest Southampton will kick off this evening at Guildhall Square.

Saints will play Birmingham at St Mary's at 12.30pm on Saturday.

And thousands of cruise passengers will travel to the city as eight cruise ships arrive over the weekend - four today, two on Saturday and two on Sunday.

The warning comes at the end of a stressful week for motorists after flooding brought traffic on West Quay Road to a standstill on Wednesday.

Drivers are being asked to follow the signage on key routes into the city for up-to-date information.

Southampton City Council is also advising motorists to download the Breeze Travel Planner app to find the quickest options for journeys around the city.
