Slow-moving traffic on the M25 is continuing to cause delays for motorists in Potters Bar and St Albans this evening.

The delays are affecting the B556 Mutton Lane, Potters Bar, as well as the A1000 Hatfield Road and High Street in St Albans.

The slow-moving traffic is caused by congestion on the anti-clockwise carriageway of the M25 between Junction 22 for St Albans and Junction 24 for Potters Bar.

Delays were expected to last until 5pm but are still ongoing, according to Herts county council’s highways department.
