Traffic chaos after M25 accident
TWO people were injured after a six-car pile up on the M25 this morning.
Fire crews from St Albans and Potters Bar struggled to get to the scene on the clockwise carriageway near junction 23 because of the roadworks. Access was eventually made possible when crews travelled in the oncoming lane.
One man suffered a cut to the head and police say another male suffered back and abdominal pains but firefighters took the roof off his car to ensure he could be removed carefully.
The crash happened around 6.30am and traffic was soon queuing back to junction 17, Maple Cross. Southbound traffic on the M1 was also delayed and along the A414.
Lines of traffic soon built up through London Colney as drivers sought alternative routes to the motorway.
