A pothole has damaged several vehicles in a road.

Police are at the scene of the "large" pothole this evening (September 21) in Aldenham Road, Bushey.

A picture tweeted by Hertsmere Police shows cones placed around the pothole, which police say has damaged several vehicles.

Police said in a tweet: “Please avoid Aldenham road Bushey .

“Officers are currently dealing with a large pot hole that has caused damage to a number of vehicles. Reported to Highways who are currently looking into it!”

The incident has caused some slow moving traffic on the road, according to google maps.

Meanwhile, a burst water main has been causing traffic on the A41 near Bushey today, with the road having been shut since at least 4am.

The closure is in place between the Hartspring roundabout by the Toby Carvery restaurant, and Sandy Lane next to McDonald’s, so also includes the A41 entrance into Costco.

It is not clear when the road will reopen.
