Emergency services have dealt with two overturned vehicles on the M25, as well as a third collision, this afternoon.

All lanes are now open again following crashes at Kings Langley, London Colney, and Chorleywood.

Police and firefighters were first called to near j22 early this afternoon and found a silver vehicle on its roof. Fortunately, injuries were minor, police say.

It caused delays in both directions on the M25 and on local routes including the A414 and A405 near St Albans.

Then at around 4pm, a vehicle overturned near j20 for Kings Langley blocking two lanes initially and then one before the vehicle was moved over to the hard shoulder.

Police then received another call, this time on the clockwise carriageway between j18 for Chorleywood and j19. All traffic was held, but Highways England reported all the lanes were open by 5pm.

Most of the delays have cleared on the M25 but it remains slow both ways at j19 for Watford.

But the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Road Policing unit said a number of drivers face fines after ignoring 'red X' signs which signalled that there were lane closures in place near j22.

On June 10 last month, the Home Office introduced a law that drivers who ignore the 'red X' on smart motorways faced automatic £100 fines and penalty points.
