Police were forced to shut the A1101 at Four Gotes, Wisbech on Saturday, October 12 after thick mud was left in the middle of the carriageway.

Officers said the "weather has not helped" after they arrived to find one of the farmers trying to clear the road using a yellow JCB.

The warning was to "approach with care" as farmers worked for more than two hours to try and clear up the Fen road.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: "There is farming in progress and the weather has not helped. The farmer swept the road to clean it.
