A crash on the M25 is causing long tailbacks affecting traffic for St Albans, London Colney, Hatfield, South Mimms and Potters Bar.

A collision between two vehicles on the M25 at Junction 25 is keeping anticlockwise traffic at a standstill back to Junction 22 connecting to St Albans and London Colney.

The Metropolitan Police are on the scene to remove vehicles.

Travellers for Potters Bar, Hatfield and South Mimms will also be affected as the delay passes through Junctions 23 to 24.

Going clockwise, traffic is moving slowly up to Junction 26.

One lane out of three has been closed.

Normal traffic conditions are expected between 5.45pm and 6pm, but in the meantime drivers can expect at least 50 minutes’ delay.

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.
