Emergency services are on the scene of a crash on the M25 in Hertfordshire involving an overturned lorry.

Highways England has tweeted that the M25 is closed anti-clockwise between Junction 22 for St Albans and Junction 21A for the M1 due to an overturned lorry.

Highways England tweeted to say police and the ambulance service were assisting, but motorists should expect long delays.

A Herts Police spokeswoman said: “We were called at 2.12pm to Junction 22 anti-clockwise to reports a vehicle had overturned.

“We had to close the motorway in both directions to allow for the air ambulance to land.

“It was due to land, but is now not attending.

“The ambulance service is on the scene and we are aware that the lorry driver has suffered minor injuries.

“We’re still on the scene.”

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.
