A fire has closed the A14 in both directions on the border of Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire.

A stack alight in a neighbouring field has lead to smoke billowing across the dual carriageway at Catworth.

Police have tweeted that the road is closed between Brampton Hut on the A1 and the A605 junction at Thrapston.

Motorists were being advised by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit to find alternative routes.
