Ambulance and fire crews, and police, all attended the scene after the collision in Guyhirn, outside Bretts Transport, at around 8am this morning.

A bus and lorry also collided in the same area back in June, leaving two dead, but a police spokesman said this time there were only minor injuries, with nobody taking to hospital.

Some of those hurt were children.

A single lane reopened with the road then fully reopening later on.
