Police have closed M25 lanes in both directions between Junction 23 for Hatfield and South Mimms and Junction 24 for Potters Bar after two separate accidents.

Emergency services are currently at the scene of the two crashes, including one involving a car that came to rest on its roof.

Police had to close all lanes until 7.15pm, but now have reopened one lane clockwise and three anticlockwise between Junctions 23 and 24.

Traffic is at a standstill at the approach to either side of that stretch of motorway; clockwise from Junction 22 from St Albans and anticlockwise from Junction 25 from Waltham Cross.

In a tweet sent at 6.57pm, Hertfordshire police advised motorists to avoid the area.

Normal traffic conditions are expected at around 8pm.

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.
