Five people had to be taken to hospital with five more treated by paramedics, after a crash involving three cars near Market Drayton.

The A41 had to be closed at Rosehill while emergency crews worked to help the 10 adults and children affected, with one driver cut from their car using hydraulic equipment.

Two of the cars crashed head on at about 3pm on Monday, and four fire crews attended as well as police and ambulances.

A spokesman for the Market Drayton Fire Station said: "Trauma care was provided by both West Midlands Ambulance Service staff, firefighters and police officers to a total of ten casualties, five adults and five young children.

"Thankfully five of the casualties were able to be discharged at the scene, with the remaining five being transported to hospitals for further treatment and assessments. We understand that none of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening.

"We send our best wishes for a full and speedy recovery to all the injured. We would like to thank the members of the public who came to the aid of the injured prior to the arrival of the emergency services, and for the patience of those caught up in the traffic."
