Two cars caused carnage in Whittlesey yesterday afternoon when they collided close to Sir Harry Smith Community College at the end of the school day.

Police confirmed that a Mazda and Ford car crashed at the top of Guildenburgh Crescent, which connects to Eastrea Road.

Conversation quickly started on social media after people heading into the Fenland town experienced “grid lock traffic” as they approached.

Firefighters were forced to use specialist equipment to stabilise the vehicle and release one of the casualties, who was then left in the care of the East of England Ambulance Service.
