St Albans firefighters rushed to help an overturned lorry and subsequent oil spill on the M25 this morning (May 26).

Both lanes on the clockwise exit slip at junction 23 by South Mimms are currently closed, and are not expected to reopen until 11am.

Cars currently cannot join the A1(M) north-bound from the M25 in either direction, and also cannot join the A1 south from the M25 anticlockwise.

Firefighters from Potters Bar, Borehamwood, and St Albans were called to the scene at about 6.15am this morning to help sort the problem out.

A diversion goes from the M25 at junction 22, onto the A1081, then rejoins the A1(M) at junction 3.
