The ambulance service confirmed on Friday that the driver of the car later died at the scene despite the best efforts of emergency crews.

West Mercia Police's Operations and Communications Centre tweeted shortly after 5pm to say the B4386 was being closed "due to a serious RTC".

The crash happened near the pub at Brockton, where the B4499, which runs from Minsterley and Pontesbury, meets the B4386.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said medics were called at 4.14pm after receiving reports that one vehicle had crashed into a wall at the junction.

"We sent one ambulance and one paramedic officer to the scene," he said.
