Friday! Hangovers, traffic & music

Friday At Last
Apologies if you have to work this weekend but thank f**k Friday is here at last!
Loads of stuff on today as the Christmas weekend begins; check out the listings below for the full story.

Traffic Chaos Predicted
The roads are expected to be filled with happy souls going away for Christmas today. Of course they may not be quite so happy if they get stuck in the near death experience that is the 40mph roadworks section of the M5!

Bad News On Hangover Cures
With the festive season in full flow, researchers reveal what many may have suspected - hangover cures do not work.

A team from the Peninsula Medical School found "no compelling evidence" that a range of herbal and conventional treatments were effective.

Hangovers account for about £2bn in lost wages in Britain each year, mainly due to sickness absence.

Writing in the British Medical Journal, the researchers say only abstinence or moderation can really stop hangovers.
