A man has been airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with a suspected injury to his pelvis and serious leg injuries after a crash on the A47 between Guyhirn roundabout and Begdale roundabout earlier today.

The collision, which happened at 12.40pm and involved a lorry and a van, required an air ambulance, fire crew and police team to attend the scene.
