One lane is closed on the M25 in Hertfordshire after a lorry left the road and caught fire last night.

It happened on Junction 17 at Maple Cross around 7.30pm.

A lane is closed anti-clockwise at Junction 18, while the clean up goes on.

It's expected to remain closed through this morning's rush hour and is causing heavy delays.

Police say no one has been seriously injured.
