Tanker spill causes A14 closure in Cambridgeshire

The A14 in Cambridgeshire is expected to be closed in both directions for up to seven hours because a tanker is leaking its load of ethanol.

The tanker crashed with a lorry on the Spitalls roundabout at Huntingdon at about 1230 GMT.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service says it has set up a 200m (656ft) exclusion zone for public safety.

The A14 is closed between junction 24 for Godmanchester and junction 21 for Brampton.

The incident is also affecting the A141.

More than 30 firefighters are at the scene and are advising nearby residents to stay indoors and keep doors and windows shut.
