Residents in and around Bridgnorth took to social media after seeing an unusual Army Apache helicopter buzzing overhead at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for RAF Shawbury said the chopper was likely from Wattisham and Middle Wallop and flown by the British Army Air Corps as part of a routine training flight.

But the sight of military machines overhead is a common one for one Shropshire couple near Chelmarsh, whose home is regularly buzzed by army helicopters including Apache gunships, Airbus 135 ‘Juno’, Chinooks and Wildcat helicopters.
