A man arrested after a car travelled about eight miles the wrong way down the A1(M) has been bailed.

The 26-year-old from Southampton was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and dangerous driving in the early hours of Thursday morning.

His arrest came after a silver Ford Fiesta got on at Stevenage’s Junction 7 at roughly 1.50am and drove down the northbound carriageway to near Hatfield’s Junction 4, where police stopped the vehicle.

It collided with a police car, but no-one was injured.

The Ford Fiesta needed to be recovered by police and the road was reopened by 2.45am.
