Two dogs were killed after they ran out in front of two vehicles – causing a crash on a main route between Godmanchester and Papworth. 

The dogs were among a number that ran onto the A1198 at about 12.50pm on Saturday (February 5), causing a collision involving two vehicles. 

An investigation is now underway to establish how the dogs – which were all foxhounds or a similar breed – ended up on the road. 

Neither driver was injured as a result of the collision and no arrests have been made.
