Several people responded to the Policing Fenland Facebook page about the road conditions in that area.

“That is a very bad junction,” wrote one man. “It has a nasty blind spot to traffic coming along the main road, often quite fast.”

Another wrote that she had experienced “a few near misses with people pulling out of there myself, it’s a very awkward junction to see down the road from”.
