A car ended up on its side following a crash on a dual-carriageway this morning.

Police and fire crews were called to a collision involving three vehicles on the A414 near St Albans, at 9.36am.

It happened on the eastbound carriageway, not far from the Park Street roundabout, towards the direction of the London Colney roundabout.

The cars involved were a grey Vauxhall Astra, a black Peugeot 207 and a blue Fiat Punto.

One of the vehicles was resting against the central reservation on its side.

No one was seriously injured.

Police blocked off one lane, causing queues on the A414.

The vehicles have been recovered and the road is now fully re-opened.
