A Fenland road was closed this afternoon after a tractor and trailer went off the road – and a second followed.
Residents believe the second tractor combination was trying to get past the first when it, too, came off the road between Murrow and Guyhirn.
There are no reports of any injuries to either driver.
Villagers in both Murrow and Guyhirn are concerned by the condition of the road.
One resident posted to Facebook that on Gull Road where they live “our house shakes when the tractors go by.
“I am glad no one was hurt today but the road is awful all the way through from Guyhirn to Murrow.”
Another said they, too, live on Gull Road and believe the road “has never been so bad” in the 30 years they have been there.

“It is where the road has dipped from when the mains sewerage was put in,” they said. “There are now deep ruts which are the problem when a lorry hits them.”
