Gas tanker crashes on A14

A tanker carrying 4,200 litres of argon gas and 1,000 litres of CO2 has been involved in a crash with two other vehicles on the A14. The accident happened at the Catthorpe junction with the M1 at around 8.40 this morning. Emergency services were called, the road remains closed.

Specialist hazard teams were called, but as the gases are not a danger to the environment they are being allowed to vent naturally.
