Road closed in Woolmer Green

A ROAD connecting WGC and Knebworth has been closed after an OAP fell off his bike.

The man who had been in collision with a car shortly after 2pm today (Sunday) was taken by ambulance to hospital.

London Road, through the village of Woolmer Green was closed for at least an hour following the accident, which was close to the petrol station.

Traffic was diverted around nearby minor roads, which were struggling to cope with the overflow of cars.

One driver tying to get from Stevenage to WGC said the police could have done more.
