The A505 was shut in both directions this morning after a two-car crash just outside Hitchin.

A silver Ford Mondeo and a grey Vauxhall Astra were involved in the collision, which occurred on the A505 Offley Road at the junction of Carters Lane – formerly known as Wibbly Wobbly Lane.

Although the crash took place on the carriageway heading towards Luton, the A505 was initially closed in both directions as the cars ended up on opposite sides of the road.

The eastbound section – heading towards Hitchin – has now reopened.

Police officers, an ambulance and the fire service have all been called to the scene.
