Police are investigating a series of collisions around the Fens over the weekend – including this tractor that came off the road into Manea.
Photographer Steve Williams was at the scene on the Wimblington to Manea road mid morning on Saturday, some hours after the collision occurred.
A day later police issued a notice through their Facebook page to say signs had been put in place on the same road, the B1093, by Cambridgeshire County Council highways department.
“We are receiving a number of reports into relation to roads that have mud on them,” said a police spokesman.
“Once again we’re urging motorists to drive to the conditions of the road and the weather. This week has seen a drop in temperature.

Ursula Berry commented on the police Facebook page that “the roads around Manea are atrocious. It’s a bad accident waiting to happen.”

Lee Sustins said: “Shocking how much mud is on the roads at the moment, no warning, no signs, and certainly no sign of farmers cleaning it up.
“And I bet if anyone has an accident then the farmers are not going to pay up, if I left something on the road then I would be charged.”
Alan Bruce said: “Some farmers do clean the road when mud is taken on them my job last week for two days was solely cleaning the road of mud which I almost got hit three times because people would not slow down and we had signs out but still drivers took no notice
