A main road in Hitchin was closed for almost an hour this morning after a crash involving a car and a motorbike.
The crash happened at about 8.30am in Cambridge Road, near The Anchor pub, and involved a Ford Fiesta and a Yamaha motorbike.
The road, the main route out of Hitchin towards Letchworth and Stotfold, was left blocked.
