A second patient was treated by East of England Ambulance Service paramedics for neck pain and was also taken to Peterborough City Hospital.

Both are described as being in a stable condition.

The road was closed well into the afternoon as Highways cleared an oil spill from the carriageway.

The road has now reopened.
