Drivers on the M25 were held up yesterday after a fire at a caravan park near Abbots Langley brought traffic to a standstill.
Yesterday evening (January 29) the M25 clockwise between Junction 20 and 21 was shut to allow the emergency services to deal with the incident.
This caused delays for drivers with traffic going back for around three miles.
A spokesperson for Herts Police confirmed the incident on Facebook.
They said: “We’re assisting the fire service while they deal with a large fire in Bedmond Road, Bedmond, near Abbots Langley.
“Bedmond Road is currently closed as is the #M25 clockwise between junctions 20 and 21.
“Please avoid the area while emergency services deal with the incident.”
Herts Fire Service also confirmed the incident on Twitter.
They wrote: “HertsFRSControl have just taken 73 calls to a fire seen from the M25 at junction 21. Incident still ongoing. Thanks to LincsFireRescue, HumbersideFire, Norfolkfire Control Rooms for their assistance AGAIN today with picking up our overflow calls!”
The road was reopened again at around 7pm.
