    A car smashed into a shed next to an electricity substation off the A1 near Borehamwood.
  • Emergency services were at the scene of the crash which happened this morning on the southbound carriageway before the Rowley Lane exit.
  • A Volkswagen came off the road and crashed into a water pump station.
  • Fortunately, no one was injured.
  • However, it was a chaotic scene after the car hit a water company's booster pump, causing it to burst.
  • Affinity Water, which serves Borehamwood, said it received a high volume of calls reporting problems with water pressure.
  • The company asked residents to use water sparingly.
  • However, the company has now reconfigured the network so residents should now have a normal supply of water.
  • Two lanes on the A1 southbound were closed causing traffic delays.
  • Queues have now cleared.
  • For more details and updates, see below.
