Police, fire and ambulance crews all attended the scene at around 8am this morning, with the road blocked between Thorney and Guyhirn.

Injuries were at first thought to be minor, but a police spokesman confirmed this afternoon that one person was taken to Peterborough City Hospital in an ambulance, while a child was taken to hospital later by a parent.

One lane reopened on the A47 to allow traffic to move, with the road fully reopening later on.

A bus and lorry also collided in the same area back in June in a horror crash which killed two people.
