Vehicles were involved in a crash earlier this morning on the M25 near Potters Bar, resulting in all traffic on the clockwise carriageway coming to a standstill.

Highways England warned motorists of the crash between Potters Bar and Waltham Cross at about 6.30am, tweeting: “Traffic stopped on M25 clockwise between J24 and J25 due to an incident.

“We’re just moving vehicles involved.

“Bear with us.”

One lane was closed, but traffic was allowed to pass through shortly after.

By about 7am, all lanes were open but motorists faced delays due to the build up of traffic.

Herts Police were called at 5.41am by the ambulance service following reports of a Skoda Octavia and a Daff lorry being in collision.

A police spokesman said the driver of the car had been taken to a hospital in London.
