Two lanes have reopened on the M25 anti-clockwise following a car fire near to St Albans.

Police were called around 1.13pm to reports a BMW was alight on the hard shoulder between junctions 21A and 22, and smoke was drifting across the highway.

Firefighters from St Albans and Garston used a hose reel to extinguish the blaze, which they achieved by 1.37pm.

It is not believed anyone was injured.
