Cambridgeshire: Diesel from lorry crash causes chaos on A14
A DIESEL spillage caused by a collision involving two lorries caused traffic chaos on the A14.
The road was shut for five hours while emergency services cleaned up the mess on the westbound carriageway near Fenstanton in Cambridgeshire.
A lorry veered off the road and ended up in trees following a crash with another lorry and a car at around 8am.
Firefighters were called to cut free a casualty using specialist equipment, although no-one was seriously hurt.
Crews had made the scene safe shortly after 9am, but diversions were put in place while the diesel was cleared away.
