Paramedics, police and firefighters were all sent to the incident at Tankerville Street, off Monkmoor Road, on Saturday.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service sent four crews from Shrewsbury and Wellington to the scene and used cutters to release one patient who was trapped between the vehicles.

The casualty, whose age and gender has not yet been confirmed, is believed to have been caught between a parked people carrier and a truck belonging to builders' merchants Huws Gray.

The extent of their injuries are not yet known but an air ambulance landed at nearby Castle Walk Recreation Ground at around 11am.

The narrow residential road, which connects Monkmoor Road with Underdale Road near the River Severn, has cars parked on both sides leaving no room for two-way traffic.

Pedestrians were able to pass the scene soon after the incident and the road was reopened to cars at around 1.30pm.
