MPs meets minister to discuss Mildenhall Fiveways roundabout

The installation of traffic lights on the Fiveways roundabout at Barton Mills will be discussed by the West Suffolk MP, and the roads minister Jesse Norman at a meeting this evening.

Earlier this year, the government announced work on the £400,000 scheme would start in Autumn 2018 and should be complete by the following spring.

It followed a long campaign by local residents and motorists who had complained about frequent accidents on the roundabout and congestion at peak times.

Matt Hancock said: "Fiveways is notorious to the thousands of people who use the roundabout every day - it is dangerous, confusing, and very often congested and gridlocked."

We'll report back on the meeting tomorrow.

South East Cambridgeshire MP Lucy Frazer, Conservative, will also be at the meeting, where the A14/A142 junction at Newmarket, and the A1307, between Cambridge and Haverhill, will also be on the agenda.

Don't second guess the electorate

Hannah Olsson

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire political reporter

What a night!

You'd think we'd have learned over the last couple of years not to second guess the electorate, but there won't be many people in Cambridgeshire who would have predicted this morning Labour would have won Peterborough and had a huge swing in Cambridge.

We knew Peterborough was in Labour's sights, but few really believed that Conservative Stewart Jackson would end his 12-year stint as the city's MP. But Labour's Fiona Onasanya was the one to unseat him - with a tight majority of just 607.

Meanwhile, everyone I spoke to predicted another close fight between Labour and the Liberal Democrats in Cambridge, but in the end it was far from it. Daniel Zeichner won convincingly with a majority of 12,661 over Julian Huppert.

Elsewhere, Cambridgeshire's other Conservative MPs have kept their seats, some increasing their majorities.

But also we've seen a surge in support for Labour in their seats and the bottom fall out of the UKIP vote.

All seven of our constituencies have now declared, with two big bits of news to tell you about.

In the north of the county, Labour has gained Peterborough from the Conservatives. Stewart Jackson, who held the position since 2005, lost the seat to Fiona Onasanya by 607 votes.

In Cambridge Daniel Zeichner (Lab) held the seat, but added 12,062 on to his majority of just a few hundred in 2015.

Elsewhere, the Conservative party has held Cambridgeshire North East, North West, South and South East.
