TWO car drivers have been killed after a lorry ran into the back of a rush-hour traffic queue on the A14.

The accident happened on the westbound carriageway at Girton, Cambridgeshire, close to the B1049 junction, on Thursday night.

A 48-year-old Cambridge man had been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and is being questioned.

Officers believe the cars were shunted into the back of a second lorry that was also waiting in the queue.

Neither of the motorists killed in the crash have been named by police.

Officers have yet to say whether the victims were men or women, although a spokeswoman said one was driving a Fiat Punto.
