A spate of crashes meant police officers were kept busy today (Thursday) amid heavy downpours in Cambridgeshire.

One vehicle was reported to have hit trees on the A1 at Alconbury just before 10.40am.

“We were called at 10.39am this morning with reports of a collision on the A1M southbound at Alconbury involving a single vehicle which had collided with some trees,” said a Cambridgeshire Police spokesperson.

“The central barrier has been damaged, and we believe the vehicle was travelling northbound.”

Police, fire and ambulance crews were in attendance but no injuries were reported.

A car was then involved in a crash in Hemingford Abbots just over an hour later.

“We were called at 11.52am with reports of a collision involving a car on the A1307 eastbound,” the police spokesperson said.

“No details of any injuries.”

Beforehand, a three-vehicle crash was reported further north of the county.

Police were called at 8.18am following reports of a crash on the A47 at Guyhirn where the three vehicles were blocking the road.

“It looks like there are some minor injuries but we’re not clear on how many people,” said a spokesperson.

An ambulance and recovery crew were in attendance at the scene.

Also in Fenland, one motorist was also caught speeding during the wet weather.

In Peterborough, a motorist had crashed into a telegraph pole just after 7.45am.

“We were called at 7.46am with reports of a collision in Dogsthorpe Road, Peterborough, where a car collided with a telegraph pole,” the police spokesperson said.

“No injuries were reported, just slight damage to the pole and car.”

Police were then called to Garton End Road, Peterborough when a car hit a parked car, which had to be recovered due to damage.

Later that morning, a two-vehicle crash took place on the A1139 at Orton Southgate, where no injuries were sustained.

“We were called at 11.03am with reports of a collision on the Fletton Parkway at Orton Southgate involving a car and a truck,” the police spokesperson said.

Earlier today, the Met Office issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms in the East of England which has now passed.

It is unclear if any of the crashes in Cambridgeshire on October 20 were due to the wet conditions.
