Cambridgeshire Constabulary are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collision, which happened at the Brampton Hut junction of the A14 and A1 at around 10.50am. The crash happened at the slip road joining the A1 northbound and shut the road for several hours while police carried out accident investigation work at the scene.

Highways engineers were also sent to ensure the lorries were both safely recovered, fix damage done to the central barriers and clear up a diesel spillage. The driver of one of the lorries, a man, suffered serious injuries. He was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital but later died.

The other driver suffered serious injuries, but they are not believed to be life threatening. Police shut the A14 eastbound on the approach to Brampton Hut, along with the slip road onto the A1 northbound. Drivers were warned they may face severe delays as the westbound carriageway near Huntingdon was also shut because of a large pothole which had appeared on the carriageway.

Police are urging witnesses and anyone with information to call the roads policing unit on 101.
