A woman has been taken to hospital after a crash on the A10 which left two vehicles in a ditch.

The three-vehicle crash happened at about 8am this morning on the road heading northbound between Royston and Melbourn.

She was taken to hospital with a serious but not life-threatening injury.

When police arrived, two vehicles were in a ditch and one was in the road.

Both sides of the road were closed and then one lane reopened. At about 9.50am, there was a further minor collision in passing traffic which meant the lane was closed again briefly. Both roads were reopened before 11am.

A witness at the scene, who was heading in the opposite direction at the time, said: “It was a nasty crash. The traffic was tailing back to Royston at about 8.30am. Police were attending a lady that was lying on the roadside. She was then taken away on a stretcher.”
