Well if Dawlish town gets anywhere as busy as Dawlish Warren was yesterday (Friday) afternoon  I'd say the restoration of their normal food chain is imminent.

Doing what you are advised to do is only possible if you can figure out what the advice is that is being given. It's taken almost a week for a fair chunk of the country to figure out what bamboozling Boris was going on about last Sunday. Here is one analysis.
