An elderly man and woman remain in a critical but stable condition after being struck by a van on a diversion route last week.

Two pedestrians, a man and a woman in their 70s, were both seriously injured and airlifted to hospital in Stoke after initially being cared for by passers by at the scene on the B5069 St Martins Road in Gobowen.

Two air ambulances and two land ambulances were sent to the crash, which happened on St Martins Road at the junction with West Place at around 9.30am on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for West Mercia Police has confirmed that the pair remain in a critical but stable condition.

The pair were struck in Gobowen, on a route that traffic was diverted through due to a fatal crash on the A5 near to Oswestry.
