Highways England has warned motorists of congestion on the M25 between junctions 20 and 22 near St Albans after a lorry overturned early this morning.

The anti-clockwise carriageway was closed while the vehicle was removed and the lane cleared up, but all lanes are now open and the lorry has been recovered.

However, motorists can expect delays along this stretch until at least 11.30am.

Police attended the scene, and no serious injuries were reported.

Extensive barrier repairs will be needed.

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.
