Watford motorists faced rush-hour disruption this morning after a crash closed a part of a major roundabout.

Hertfordshire Police were called at around 7am to reports that a black Fiat Punto had crashed on the roundabout connecting Stephenson Way/A4008 to the town centre.

The incident forced officers to shut the exit to Waterfields Way until 8.09am as they attended alongside the East of England Ambulance Service.

No other vehicles were reported as being involved and the Fiat driver was taken to hospital by paramedics with minor head injuries, police said.

Commuters face almost a week of disruption next month as 16 miles of the London Overground and Bakerloo line are set to shut.

Watford Junction and nearby stations will be affected for six days in August as Network Rail engineers upgrade “life-expired equipment” on the two lines.

From August 3 to 8, the Bakerloo line will be closed between Queen’s Park and Harrow & Wealdstone and the Overground will be impacted between Watford Junction and London Euston.

Transport for London has advised customers to use alternative rail lines and existing bus routes while temporary bus routes will also be in place.
