A woman in her 60s has died after the Jaguar she was driving crashed inside a tunnel on a major road.

Hertfordshire Police said the incident occurred on the A1(M) northbound carriageway, between junctions three and four, near Hatfield, at about 21:05 BST on Friday.

The green Jaguar F Type was reportedly travelling through the Hatfield tunnel when it crossed the carriageway and collided with the central reservation.

No other vehicles were believed to have been involved.

The woman’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by the police.

Sgt Alex Ward, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the woman’s family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

“Inquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances around what happened. We are appealing for anyone who saw the collision, or who saw the vehicle travelling in the area prior to it, to please come forward.

“We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have captured dashcam footage.

“If you can help, please get in touch.”
