Train company Great northern say two trains were meant to couple at the station - but did so too quickly..
A spokesperson for the company says, "Shortly after 10am this morning one of our Great Northern services was involved in a low-speed incident in platform 7 of Cambridge station.
"This was the 09.14 King's Cross to Cambridge service, a four-carriage Class 365 train, which couples with another four-carriage unit in the platform to form a 10.30 return service to King's Cross. The two units came into contact.
"A full investigation will be carried out."
