Morning, it’s finally Friday! Before you clock off and relax for the weekend, here is everything you need to know to get you through your day.


Today will be dry but cloudy throughout the day, although there may be a few sunny spells when the cloud thins at certain points. Temperatures will reach highs of 18C at around 3pm.


There are currently long delays and one lane is blocked on the M1 London bound at Junction 5 A41 North Western Avenue a4008 Stephenson Way, in Watford, with congestion leading to J6a on the M25.

Two cars are involved. One car is blocking lane four (of four) while the other car has pulled onto the hard shoulders.

There is also slow traffic due to a van fire on the A414 North Orbital Road Eastbound between A414/A5183 Watling Street / A405 North Orbital Road (Park Street Roundabout) and A1081 London Road (London Colney Roundabout).

The van has now been extinguished which had a cage full of waste and was parked in a lay by. Traffic is slowing past the scene but is not blocking the main carriageway.

There is also the usual slow traffic on the A1 near Mill Hill, as well as Borehamwood, and the A41 North Western Avenue in North Watford.
