There are hour-long delays on the M25 between Potters Bar and St Albans following a “HGV shed load incident” this morning (September 11).

Highways England has urged motorists to consider using alternative routes after two lanes of the clockwise carriageway were forced to close between Junction 24 for Potters Bar and 25 for Enfield.

Contractors are currently working to clear the “shed load of steel”, causing tailbacks affecting South Mimms and St Albans.

Updates to follow.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
