Oswestry goes Green as Conservatives suffer in Shrewsbury Town Council election
Shropshire Council leader Peter Nutting suffered a second defeat in the local elections as the town council results came in.
In 1245 King Henry III granted a charter for a weekly Wednesday market, giving Market Drayton its current name. The market is still held every Wednesday and attracts residents from all over Shropshire. The town is also home to Muller dairy and sausage maker Palethorpe's bakery.
