A police spokeswoman said all traffic was temporarily halted near Junction 4 at around 8.40am following the collision – which involved “three or four vehicles”.

She said the stretch near Junction 4 was cleared by about 9.10am.

Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Police tweeted: “Hatfield tunnel now clear. It may not look much but a snapped front axle poses a problem. Thanks to Highways England for dragging it clear. Patience is a virtue.”

Nobody was injured in the collision, the spokeswoman added.
