Four people were taken to hospital following a two car collision on a notorious stretch of the A1101 through Fenland.

The collision happened yesterday afternoon on the Sutton Road at Newton, outside of Wisbech and the road had to be closed for several hours to clear the debris and to remove spilt diesel.

A police spokesman said officers attended along with Cambs Fire and Rescue and the East of England ambulance service.

“Four people have been taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at King’s Lynn; inquiries are ongoing.”
