Traffic in Newport ground to a halt last night after a lorry crashed into the rail bridge.
Police were called to Cambridge Road to assist following the bridge strike by a lorry, thought to be cutting through the village as a detour as there were long delays on the M11 southbound.
Earlier yesterday, one lane of the motorway was closed between Great Chesterford and Stansted due to a five-vehicle crash and subsequent oil spillage.
The lane closure saw traffic go as far back as junction 11 at Cambridge, for Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and the A11 was also backed up.
