A driver veered through barriers and ended up stranded on the Black Cat roundabout in Cambridgeshire.  

The crash happened earlier today and officers from the Beds, Cambs & Herts Roads Policing Unit spotted it. 

“Whilst heading back to our patrol base this caught our attention at the A1/A421 interchange,” said the policing unit tweet.

They added: “The cat didn’t look too impressed, someone has some explaining to do.” 

The A1 Black Cat roundabout has been a traffic hotspot for many years but is going to be upgraded as part of a £507m improvement scheme unveiled last month.

The plan is to build a 10-mile dual carriageway with a three-tier junction at the Black Cat roundabout. 

A new dual carriageway will travel over it.
