Frustrated traders cut off by roadworks say 'we're still here' after signs cause 'disaster'

Traders in a Shropshire village have said they are open for "business as normal" despite signs on the main route to the parish saying the road is closed.

Mark Freeman of the Danery has said the road works meant he has seen as few as two people a day come through the doors.

On February 19 the A442 Kidderminster Road was closed for roadworks set to last until this weekend.

The works by Shropshire Council to conduct "pre-dressing patching works" on a 3km stretch of the road have seen the road closed between 9.30am and 4pm - peak trading hours for traders in Quatford.

Businesses in the village say the road signs by Shropshire Council have failed to let people know Quatford is still accessible during the closure.
