St Albans motorists travelling clockwise along the M25 have been warned to expect delays after a lorry transporting a portable cabin left debris on the motorway this afternoon (Friday).

A spokeswoman for Herts Police said that at about 1pm there were reports of a lorry losing debris, including large pieces of timber, near South Mimms.

A rolling road-block was arranged to enable the debris to be cleared, and the portable cabin was transferred to another vehicle.

Two lanes initially closed as a result have now been reopened, but motorists have been warned to expect traffic congestion this afternoon.

There are currently delays of at least 20 minutes between J21A and J23.

The Highways Agency said it was hoped that normal traffic conditions would resume from about 3.30pm.
