Good morning, a cool and rather drab day is in store for us with showers likely throughout the afternoon.

Top temperatures of 19 degrees celcius ahead of a prolonged cool period of weather.

If you are out travelling today, expect some delays on the M25 between Hertfordshire and the M4. Queues building quite heavily from j17 at Maple Cross.

The rest of the M25 is running well.

M11 slow southbound approaching the A406 where queues continue to A12 roundabout.

Also very slow on A406 westbound approaching the A10 to the Powys Lane junction. 

And also slow on the A406 westbound at Henlys Corner. 

Roadworks causing some delays in London Road, Stanmore, near the station, and in Watling Street near Park Street station. 

Busy too in Chingford, particularly in Bury Lane towards the centre of Chingford.

Thameslink trains are running with minor delays this morning.

There is a points failure at Harpenden so trains running between London St Pancras and Luton may be cancelled or delayed by up to 15 minutes.

Disruption expected until 9am.

Good service on all tube lines.
