Police asked members of the public to avoid Raven Meadows in Shrewsbury as fire crews made the scene safe this morning.

Glass was falling from a top-floor window of the Darwin Shopping Centre, opposite the Raven Meadows multi-storey car park next to the town's bus station.

The road was closed at around 10am as firefighters used an aerial ladder platform to make a broken window safe.

The road was reopened at around 12.30pm.

Craig Jackson, station manager at Shrewsbury Fire Station, said the damage may have been caused by a bird striking the window.

Shrewsbury Police said: "Please keep away from Raven Meadows at the moment due to falling broken glass from the shopping centre."

The shopping centre is one of two in the town centre owned by Shropshire Council.
