The incident happened on Churchill Road and around 8pm on Thursday, September 13 and was first reported by the ambulance service.

A police officer confirmed there were no serious injuries but one man was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) as a “precaution”.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “Collision in Churchill Road, Wisbech, reported by the ambulance service at 8.20pm yesterday.

“Road was closed but reopened again at 9.50pm. No serious injury – one man taken to QEH as a precaution.”

The accident comes just days after a lorry cab burst into flames on the same road during the day – the cause of the fire was said to be accidental.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “Firefighters arrived to find a lorry well alight.
