“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.
