A woman is in hospital after a crash between a van and a tractor on M25 near Barnet.

Hertfordshire Constabulary were called to the anti-clockwise carriageway of the motorway between junction 23 and junction 24 just after 10am this morning (May 7).

A white Mitsubishi Fuso Canter van had been involved in a crash with a white Scania tractor.

Police have said that a 39-year-old woman went to hospital for checks. Her condition is not known at this time.

The crash caused delays of around 50 minutes, and forced the closure of two lanes.

The road was reopened shortly before 10.30am, but a three-mile traffic jam remained.

Paramedics from East of England Ambulance Service also attended the scene.
