One man was trapped in his vehicle after a crash between two lorries and a car on the M25 this morning (Monday).

The collision took place at about 7am, between Junction 21 for Luton and Junction 21A for St Albans.

One of the lorry drivers, a man believed to be in his 30s, was trapped, and firefighters from St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Kings Langley and Garston were called to extricate him from the vehicle.

The ambulance service treated one other patient at the scene, before taking the lorry driver to Watford General Hospital for further care.

His injuries are not life-threatening.

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.
