The Great North Road was blocked northbound at the Southoe turn off because of an accident involving a lorry and a minibus, with the overturned lorry blocking the carriageway.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “The incident also involved a Toyota Estima Emina. The road is closed at the Black Cat roundabout and a diversion is in place. The vehicles have now been recovered.”

The East of England Ambulance Service also attended the scene.

A spokesman for the service said: “An ambulance crew, rapid response vehicle and ambulance officer attended the scene.
