MOTORISTS were faced with rush hour traffic chaos after a lorry fire forced police to close a road.

The southbound entry slip road to the A41 was closed for several hours on Wednesday morning following a blaze in the engine compartment of the HGV just before 6.30am.

Two fire crews from Hemel Hempstead were called to the scene and highways workers are still there clearing diesel from the road.

The road was fully re-opened by 2pm.
