Road closed and rail services delayed after crash at Shrewsbury level crossing
A road in Shrewsbury was closed and rail services were delayed after a vehicle crashed into a level crossing barrier.
Harlescott Lane was closed at about midday today after a car crashed into the railway crossing barrier.
West Mercia Police and Network Rail were in attendance and the road was closed for a short time while repairs to the barrier were carried out.
Rail services were disrupted for a time and have since resumed with a delay of about 15 minutes between Shrewsbury and Crewe.
Motorists faced delays on the road after it had reopened and were advised to avoid the area.
