The Severn Park play area in Bridgnorth was closed on safety grounds during flooding at the turn of the year but has not yet reopened.

Facebook users have raised fears that the closure is due to flood water bringing sewage into the playground making it too contaminated to use, but Bridgnorth Town Council says the reason for the closure is a safety issue.
