Major delays were caused on the A10 in Waterbeach this morning after two lorries collided in what’s being called a ‘serious’ crash.

Firefighters had to use “specialist cutting equipment” to free one of the people from the wreckage this morning (September 12) at around 7am.

Heavy built-up traffic was caused on the road as well as most of the feeder routes, police officers advised people take alternative routes where possible.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “Two crews form Cambridge were called to road traffic collision involving two lorries on the A10 in Waterbeach.

“Firefighters used a lorry platform and specialist cutting equipment, while working with paramedics to release one casualty. Both crews returned to their station by 8.10am.”

At the time, Cambs Travel News tweeted: “Road closed due to serious RTC. Please use an alternative route if possible - traffic already built up and heavy on road and most feeder routes.”

Cambs Cops tweeted: “Serious RTC A10 Waterbeach. Road closure currently in place. Delays likely. Please avoid area where possible.”
