Emergency services were first called at 9.40am to Lytton Way in the town after a Vauxhall Corsa overturned while heading along the dual carriageway towards the Six Hills Way roundabout.

A man received first aid at the scene and was taken to Lister Hospital in Stevenage for further care. An ambulance spokesman said his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Two lanes of the A602 have been shut southbound while the car is being recovered, with motorists struggling to exit Tesco car park as a result.

About 20 mins later police, ambulance and fire crews were required again after a collision in Hitchin Road just past the roundabout for Gunnels Wood Road and Martins Way.
