The East of England Ambulance crew was called to Broad Street shortly after 3pm to reports a collision involving two cars.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was also called and landed in Cherry Hill Park.

The motorist, a woman, in her 40s, was given pain relief and placed on a stretcher before being transported to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, by ambulance.

There were minor delays on Broad Street while recovery crews cleared the road.


  • What a joke. ADAC or the OAMTC would have had your thingies for doorbells and rung them every morning if you called them out for something as trivial as this. If she was in Germany, this would have been a road trip. For the cost it sends to put one of these into the air, you could have ordered 5 road ambulances, since it's nearly £1000 alone per trip for the fuel. What a waste.
