Morning, it’s finally Friday! However, before you start to unwind for the weekend, here is everything you need to know to get you through today…



Yesterday was dreary and full of drizzle and it looks like it will stay the same today. It is predicted that it will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain throughout the day.

It will also be rather breezy, with strong winds and highs of only 14C, though hopefully, the sun should start to appear by tomorrow.


There is heavy traffic once again on the M25 anticlockwise at J19 in Watford, as well as J23 A1(M) and A1 / A1081 in St Albans Road and Bignells Corner South Mimms.

There is also queuing traffic on A1 Southbound at A411 Barnet Lane next to Stirling Corner and congestion on the A1 to A5135 in Borehamwood.


There are delays on Thameslink trains running from St Albans to Luton this morning due to a signalling fault. It is not known when the trains will be back to normal.
