Singer George Michael has received minor injuries in a car crash, his publicist said today.

The 49-year-old star is "fine" after a car he was a passenger in crashed on the M1 yesterday evening, Connie Filippello said in a statement.

East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) said a man in his 40s was flown to a specialist unit in London with head injuries after the crash at junction 6a in Hertfordshire where the motorway meets the M25.

"George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening, no third party was involved," Ms Filippello said.

"He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises but is fine. We have no further comment at this time."

EEAST said the crash occurred on the northbound carriageway at 5.47pm yesterday and was attended by three ambulances and Hertfordshire Air Ambulance.

A spokesman said: "The man who we believe to be in his 40s sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilisation and immobilisation by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to hospital for further care."
