A Cambridgeshire Police spokesperson said: “We were called at 7.23am today (26 June) with reports of a car had gone into a water-filled ditch on North Side (B1040) between Thorney and Whittlesey.

“The car, a Vauxhall Insignia, collided with a pylon before entering the ditch.

“The two occupants of the vehicle were able to get out to safety and neither were seriously injured.

“The road has been partially closed while recovery takes place.”

It is hoped the road will be re-opened soon, but motorists are advised to avoid the area while emergency services work at the scene
