An accident which caused a section of the M25 to close for seven hours this morning (Wednesday November 3rd) has left one man dead.

The collision happened between junctions 21a and 22 just before 3am.

One vehicle, a silver Mercedes C230, was involved and the driver, a 36-year old man from Shenley died at the scene.
