POLICE closed the A1 (M) southbound between junctions 6 at Welwyn and 5 at Hatfield this afternoon after a car with two men inside overturned after hitting the central reservation.

All traffic was being diverted off at Welwyn and a large tailback of vehicles built up back towards Stevenage as firefighters freed the men.

Police also closed the northbound lane at the scene so the air ambulance could land and if needed take the victims to hospital but this was later re-opened.
