A lorry driver was taken to hospital after suffering injuries in a crash on the A14.

Emergency services were called to the scene of an accident involving four lorries on the A14 Westbound near Thrapston this morning, Friday.

Police, fire and ambulance crews attended the crash between Junction 13 and 14 on the westbound carriageway of the A14.

Northants Police were called to the accident at 8.01am and the section of road remained closed for significant time while the emergency teams worked. The Environment Agency was also called to the scene, and a spokesman for Northants Police confirmed that milk was leaking onto the road from one of the lorry’s loads.

The air ambulance also attended the scene and a spokesman for the service said they have no further information to release currently.

The three emergency services were also called to a crash involving three vehicles on the A6003 Rockingham Road, near Rushton.

A spokesman for Northants Police said they were called out to the accident at 8.09am this morning but reported that nobody had suffered any injuries.

The road was partially blocked southbound near the Rushton junction, while the emergency services recovered one of the vehicles. It was re-opened just after 9am this morning but the traffic around the area remains congested.
