Police said the accident meant officers had to close part of the A5112, Robertson Way following the accident which happened at 2.30pm.

West Midlands ambulance service said paramedics treated a man and woman, from one of the cars, for injuries not believed to be serious. They were taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for further treatment.

The road was closed for a time between Crowmere Road/Baptist Church Roundabout in the south, and Telford Way/Woodcote Way roundabout in the north adding to Shrewsbury's traffic problems.

The road has been busy all week as motorists attempt to find a way around the flooded town centre.

Officers tweeted at 3.10pm to say vehicle recovery had been requested, so they were hoping the road could be fully reopened within the hour.
