MOTORISTS are being advised to avoid the M10 after a lorry overturned at the Park Street roundabout.

The incident happened at about 12.20pm this afternoon (Friday) and as a result the M10 northbound is closed while the road is cleared.

There are delays on the southbound carriageway and some spilt fuel is making the roundabout slippery.

The articulated lorry was carrying a trailer containing steel pallets which are believed to have shifted as the driver went round the Park Street roundabout approaching the M10, causing the vehicle to fall on its side.

The driver, thought to be in his 40s, has suffered minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to Watford Hospital for treatment.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
