Police have cordoned off a section of road in Fenland this morning after a large sinkhole opened up overnight near the A1101.  

Officers have told motorists to “drive carefully” through Weasenham Lane in Wisbech today (February 16) and have closed off a section of the road.  

Traffic is still thought to be flowing and police are allowing cars to pass slowly – delays are expected this morning due to the incident.  

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “Please drive carefully through Weasenham Lane, Wisbech junction of Sandall Road due to a sinkhole in the road.”
