M25 Hertfordshire Reopens After Lorry Fire

Anti-clockwise Hertfordshire section of the M25 has now reopened following lorry fire yesterday.

The Highways Agency has told Heart the anti-clockwise Hertfordshire section of the M25 has now reopened.

It was closed between junctions 23 for South Mimms and 21a for St Albans for much of Thursday and overnight, after a lorry carrying cooking oil and foodstuff overturned, spilling its content, which later caught fire. It also damaged the tarmac on the road.

Thousands of drivers were left stuck in traffic, many for several hours.

Some HGV drivers had to park up for the night in a park and ride in Hatfield.

A police investigation is underway.
