A “severe incident” forced part of the A14 to close this afternoon (Wednesday).

The westbound carriageway between Godmanchester and Spittals Interchange was blocked and traffic is reaching back to Swavesey.

Officers closed the carriageway at 3pm but reopened both lanes at 4.30pm.

Police had urged drivers to avoid the area.

A diversion has been set up, taking traffic along the A1198, A428 and the A1, though this is increasing pressure at the Caxton Gibbet roundabout.

Cambridgeshire police refused to explain the reason for the closure.
