UK drivers spend more time in traffic compared with drivers in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Holland.

The worst traffic bottleneck is a section of the M5 heading towards the M6 at Birmingham. On a Friday between 5pm and 6pm the average speed is only 8mph.

Manchester drivers suffer from jams the most, spending an average of 72 hours a year stuck in traffic, the research suggests.

Of the six countries analysed, it was found that London is second only to Paris as the most traffic-clogged city.
