The crash happened at about 6pm on Sunday at the junction of Canongate, Stafford Street, Furnace Road and Priorslee Road. Ambulance crews attended.

Meanwhile, a man was cut free from a van in one of two accidents on the A49 at the weekend.

Emergency crews were first called to the road through south Shropshire, at Leebotwood north of Church Stretton, at 10.15am on Saturday. The crash was between a small van and a large van.

One person managed to get freeof the large van on their own, but another had to be cut free from the small vehicle by a fire crew using specialist equipment and was taken to hospital.

Later the same day, at about 4.20pm, there was a crash, again on the A49, but this time at the Weston crossroads near Prees Green. No-one was trapped in the two-car collision, though West Midlands Ambulance Service also attended. The vehicles were made safe by fire service personnel.
