M25 CLOSED between J25 and J27 as emergency services called to attend 'serious collision'


The National Highways confirmed the M25 is closed anti-clockwise between Junction 27 and Junction 25. The collision, which has now seen emergency services arrive at the scene, is expected to result in the closure lasting throughout the night.

The National Highways said: “The M25 in Hertfordshire is closed anti-clockwise between J27 (for the M11) and J25 (Enfield) due to a serious collision involving a car which has left the carriageway and caught fire.

“All emergency services including Metropolitan Police are in attendance.

“National Highways Traffic Officers are also on scene providing assistance with traffic management.

“Due to the nature of the incident, the closure is expected to remain in place throughout the night.”

The National Highways has also provided advice for drivers looking for a diversion route.

Drivers are told to exit the M25 anti-clockwise at Junction 27 before joining the M11 southbound and continuing until Junction 4.

Thereafter, they are advised to merge onto the A406 North Circular Road before continuing on the A406 westbound until they reach the roundabout with the A10.

Drivers should then take the fourth exit and join the A10 northbound.

“Normal traffic conditions are expected between 00:45 and 01:00 on 2 January 2022.”

Highways England has since pushed back the date at which drivers can expect roads to return to normal.

Writing on Twitter, National Highways East said: “The road is expected to remain closed throughout the night.”

They added: “Traffic which is caught within the closure of the #M25 anti-clockwise between J27 (for the #M11) and J25 (#Enfield) is now being turned from the rear of the queue.”
