About 5.1 million people will be heading off on holiday within the UK over the bank holiday weekend, the tourism agency VisitEngland has said. This is expected to generate about 1.3bn for the UK economy. And travel organisation Abta estimates that two million Britons will head abroad from Friday to Monday. Heathrow is expecting more than 440,000 passengers to depart over the long weekend, while Gatwick is preparing for 311,000 outgoing passengers.
