CONDITIONS are treacherous on Huntingdonshire's roads and the official advice is to stay at home and avoid any unnecessary travel.

On the A14, traffic was moving at walking pace with major problems involving a lorry at the Spittals interchange, which the Highways Agency said, at 10.20am, it was still working to clear.

There was also a broken down lorry on the A14 at Hemingford Grey that had earlier been causing long queues. By 9.30am it had been cleared, but traffic was still moving very slowly.

Traffic on the other major routes in the district, the A428 and the A1(M), was also moving slowly and queues were clogging the streets in all of the market towns.

Cambridgeshire police said there had been a number of incidents on the road.

A vehicle was in a ditch between Earith and St Ives, although there was no obstruction to traffic.
