Fletton Parkway in Peterborough was closed for several hours after a lorry collided with two cars.

The accident happened on the westbound carriageway near the Showcase Cinema at 8.40pm this evening (Wednesday, March 11).

A lorry collided with the rear of a car and clipped another and police closed the road as four fire crews were called to the scene.

One witness said: “It appeared that one car had broken down and another had stopped to help and the lorry clipped both.”

It is understood there were no serious injuries and a police spokesman said: “There was a lot of traffic congestion while emergency services were at the scene and the vehicles were recovered.”

The road was still closed at 11pm as the clean-up operation was completed..
