A141 and A14 traffic as police tell motorists to avoid the area after broken down combine harvester blocks road

Parts of the A141 have been blocked after a combine harvester broke down this morning (July 12).

The vehicle broke down just after junction 23 for the A14 at around 8.50am.

It's not uncommon to see farming machinery during a rush hour commute in Cambridgeshire.

The breakdown has closed a lane on the roundabout, another on the A14 slip road, and there's reports of tailbacks for almost two miles on the A14 as traffic backs onto the dual carriageway

Police are on the scene, and recovery vehicles are on their way to move the stranded harvester.
