The air ambulance has attended the scene and police confirmed at least one person suffered serious injuries.

A diversion route of 14 miles is in place:

A spokesman for Highways England said the diversion was to: "Exit the A47 westbound approaching Peterborough early, by joining the A1139 southbound. Follow the A1139 towards the A1(M). Join the A1 northbound at junction 17 towards Wansford, to then re-join the A47."

The A47 is also closed between Guyhirn and Thorney following a crash earlier today.
