A41 open after abandoned cars rescued, police say

Hertfordshire Police has said the A41 in Hertfordshire is open this morning after it recovered a number of cars which had been abandoned on the bypass.

On Sunday, police closed the A41 between Bourne End and Hemel Hempstead - pictured below - to allow the police to reach people stuck in cars.

The force said difficult road conditions were expected to extend through Monday morning in the county and more than 1,000 tonnes of salt had been spread across the county's roads since midnight.

It is also asking people to follow its severe weather advice.

Both the north and southbound carriageways have been closed to allow for the air ambulance to land.

We'll bring you more details as we get them.

Support for Conservatives increases in safe territory

Patrick Byrne

BBC News

Many parts of Hertfordshire represent "safe Tory territory" and sitting MPs were able to consolidate their support in spite of big swings to Labour.

Conservative Oliver Heald boosted his share of the vote in Hertfordshire North East by 3.3% to take a 58.6% share with Labour's Doug Swanney trailing on 28.3%. UKIP again failed to field a candidate.

Mike Penning held Hemel Hempstead for the Tories witha 9,445 majority and 55% of the vote, a 2.1% boost, with Labour's Mandi Tattershall increasing her share by 13.1% to take 36.9%.

In Hertsmere Conservative Oliver Dowden took a 61.1% share following a marginal 1.8% increase with Fiona Smith for Labour on 28.7% and UKIP's David Hoy losing 9.7% of his party's vote share.

David Gauke in Hertfordshire South West won 57.9% of the vote share for the Tories with Rob Wakely boosting Labour's share by 9.4%, exactly the amount lost by UKIP.

Bad omen?

Rather worryingly someone seems to have booked out the hall for the whole of Friday here in Hemel Hempstead.

Could be a sign this one will finish late?
