A woman died after her car hit the central reservation on the A1m in Hertfordshire last night.

The crash happened on the northbound stretch in the Hatfield tunnel, between junctions 3 and 4, at just after 9.05pm on Friday.

A green Jaguar F Type was reportedly travelling through the Hatfield tunnel when it crossed the carriageway and hit the central reservation.

A woman aged in her 60s died at the scene. Her next of kin have been informed and are being supported by officers.

No other vehicles are believed to have been involved.
