A14: Road closed after tanker crash

DRIVERS on the A14 can expect delays this afternoon after a tanker began leaking flammable liquid on the road.

The tanker had been involved in a collision with a lorry on the A14 at the Spitalls roundabout at Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, at about 12.30pm.

The road has been closed in both directions and is expected to remain so for several hours.
