A MOTORIST was taken to hospital this morning (Wednesday) after his car collided with a lorry and overturned on the M25.

The accident happened shortly after 9am, when a red Renault Megane Scenic collided with an articulated lorry and overturned on the anti-clockwise carriageway between junction 24 Potters Bar and junction 23 South Mimms.

A section of the carriageway was closed as the driver of the Renault, a 54-year-old man from Romford, Essex, was treated at the scene by ambulance crews from Potters Bar, Borehamwood and Watford. The Herts Air Ambulance also attended.

The man was taken by land ambulance to Barnet General hospital with minor injuries.
