Officers were called at 4.04pm to the southbound carriageway just before Junction 7 for Knebworth and Stevenage to reports an orange Lamborghini had left the carriageway.

Fire crews from Stevenage and Hitchin attended the scene between Junction 8 and 7.

The road was closed in both directions to allow the air ambulance to land, causing long tailbacks and delays.

The driver, a man, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where police say he remains in “a critical condition”.
