A road in the Fens was blocked for several hours last night – and traffic forced to divert – after a tractor over turned.

Black Horse Drove near Littleport was closed for three hours after the tractor tipped over; it was the third tractor incident in a fortnight.

Police set up road blocks last night but it is not thought the driver of the tractor was seriously hurt.

A fire service spokesman said: “Crews from Littleport and Ely were called to a road traffic collision in Black Horse Drove, Littleport.

“A tractor was on its side and firefighters used specialist cutting and stabilising equipment to release one casualty by 8.55pm.”
