Two cars crashed in a busy north Watford road this afternoon.

North Western Avenue was blocked after a silver Ford Focus and black Audi A3 crashed near the Shell petrol station.

Hertfordshire Constabulary was called just before 12.20pm following reports that two cars had crashed and were blocking the road.

Firefighters were also called to the scene after there were concerns that smoke was coming from the dashboard of one of the vehicles.

Upon arrival, no fire fighting was required.

No one is reported as being injured.
