Police warned the road would be closed for "some significant time".

Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue was called shortly after 8.30pm, sending two crews from St Albans. Paramedics also attended.

The lorry struck both a bridge column and a barrier and ruptured its fuel tank, causing a large amount of fuel to leak onto the motorway.

The fire service says there are no reports of any casualties.

There is a diversion via the A414 North Orbital Road via St Albans.
