Man trapped after lorry overturns on A14
A 30 YEAR old man was rushed to hospital after the lorry he was travelling in overturned near Brampton last night.
The casualty had to be cut out by firefighters from the lorry which had overturned on the eastbound carriageway of the A14 underneath the flyover with the A1 at Brampton Hut.
He was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital about 8pm. Ambulance crew reported him as conscious and breathing when they arrived, and it is believed he sustained just minor injuries.

The road was closed for six hours while police and recovery teams cleared up the area.
Two fire engines were called to the scene from Huntingdon and they were both back at their base by 10pm.
