Police said the road was closed in both directions and warned of long delays, though it had reopened westbound by 11.30am.

One man suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for treatment.

A driver was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and will be questioned "in due course", said police.
