A man injured when two lorries collided near Newmarket today has been taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition.

At 7.29am Magpas doctor Lee Soomaroo and paramedic Alex Pearce arrived at the A14 near Newmarket via a rapid response vehicle. They had been called to treat a man injured in a collision between two lorries.
