A man who caused the M25 to be closed for several hours on Tuesday afternoon has pleaded guilty to causing a public nuisance.

Dayle Smith, aged 30, of Bingham Close in Hemel Hempstead, appeared at Hatfield Remand Court today, after police were called to a bridge over the motorway near London Colney by people who were concerned for his welfare.

The motorway was closed in both directions between junction 21A to 22 clockwise and junction 21 and 23 anti-clockwise to allow officers to bring the man to safety.

He was then arrested, medically assessed, then charged and following his plea, he has been remanded in custody for sentencing at St Albans Crown Court on August 31.
