Firefighters were called to North Bank at about 7pm after a large pile of rubbish, spanning 10m by 10m, went up in flames.

The blaze caused smoke to billow across the carriageway, causing dangerous driving conditions.

A police spokesman said: “Officers attended and closed the road from 7.20-7.40pm while the fire was extinguished and smoke cleared from the carriageway.”

A fire crew from Whittlesey used two hose reels, one jet and drags to tackle the blaze.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
