COMMUTERS faced disruption this morning as Britain was hit by storm St Jude.
The storm, which has brought with it winds of up to 70mph, hit the south-west of England over night before heading east.
The A505 between Royston and the turning New Road, Melbourn, turning is closed in both directions after a car collided with a fallen tree near the junction with Newmarket Road, Royston.
Police say two people suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries in the accident, which happened at about 7.30am this morning. Traffic is queuing all the way back to the M11 junction on the westbound carriageway, and drivers are being advised to avoid the area.
Earlier, a fallen tree on the A10 near the Queen’s Head in Harston is causing delays for drivers heading between Royston and Cambridge.
