POLICE officers from Cambridgeshire were called to a fatal crash on the A14 over the Easter weekend.

An elderly man and woman died when their silver Hyundai car hit a road sign close to the entrance of a petrol station, on the westbound carriageway near Newmarket.

Emergency services were called just after 2.35pm on Sunday.

Police closed the carriageway at the Rowley Mile Services, between the A142 junction for Exning and the A11 Nine Mile Hill junction.

Four fire crews from Newmarket and Cambridge were called and the East of England Ambulance Service sent a doctor, two ambulances and three rapid response vehicles.

The air ambulance was also called but its services were not required.

Ambulance crews treated a family of five whose car and caravan were struck by debris. They suffered shock but escaped injury.

The carriageway was reopened at 8.42pm.

Suffolk Police are appealing for witnesses to call them on 01473 613500.
