West Mercia Police officers were pictured at the scene, along with a National Highways truck. West Midlands Ambulance Service has also attended.

One witnesses said it appeared to be the only vehicle involved, and the crash has led to traffic moving very slowly around the roundabout.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "One of our ambulances came across a van on its side at the junction of the A5 and A5064 in Shrewsbury, however, following assessment it became clear nobody was injured and we were able to stand down."
