90-minute queue to escape Tesco car park at Hull's St Stephen's shopping centre
Drivers endured waits of up to 90 minutes to leave the Tesco St Stephen's car park, Hull city centre, this afternoon (Saturday), as traffic ground to a standstill.
Some motorists abandoned their cars after getting stuck in the jams.
The Tesco car park offers free parking for two hours.
The gridlock has been blamed on Park Street roadworks and a high level of shoppers heading into Hull for the first Saturday of the half-term holidays.
