Both lanes of the motorway were shut northbound between junction 6 for Welwyn and junction 7 for Stevenage this morning (Thursday) but the road is now clear.

Firefighters used cutting equipment to free a man from a Volkswagen involved in the crash before paramedics stabalised him at the scene.

He was then taken to Lister Hospital in Stevenage with what a spokesman for the ambulance service has described as a “minor neck injury”.

The collision, which occurred just before 9am, also involved a Ford Focus and a Seat Ibiza but no one else required hospital treatment.
