Police are still at the scene of a major collision on the outskirts of March today that has caused the closure of the A141 bypass in both directions.
Early reports suggest that a car has ploughed into a stationary car and trailer parked by the side of the road.
The resulting collision has seen at least one person seriously injured who has been taken to hospital.
Both cars have left the carriageway – in ditches on opposite sides of the road.
Emergency services remain at the scene after the collision near the Gaul Road junction with the A141.
The A141 is closed in both directions and is likely to remain so for some time.
Police are urgently advising motorists to avoid the area if at all possible. Many drivers are looking for alternative routes and traffic through the town centre is congested in all directions.
The AA Traffic bulletins are reporting that the accident happened between B1101 Wimblington Road and B1099 Wisbech Road and the incident is affecting travel between Chatteris and Ring’s End.
