There are long delays on the A1(M) near Stevenage and Letchworth this morning after a crash involving a motorbike.
The crash, on the southbound carriageway at about 6.40am, has caused a lane closure near Junction 8 for Stevenage.
It involved a Honda motorbike and a Ford Transit van.
There are delays of up to half an hour on the southbound stretch as a result, with the neighbouring A602 from Hitchin and B197 through Graveley also affected.
A police spokeswoman said: “Officers are currently at the scene to assist with vehicle recovery but the carriageway is not blocked.”
Paramedics treated the motorcyclist, a man described as in his 30s, at the scene before taking him to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital for further care.
