Van driver seriously injured in crash with lorry on A49
A man has been seriously injured in a crash involving a van and a lorry which has closed a main road in south Shropshire.
The scarecrow festival, a proud rural tradition, will return to a village near the south Shropshire border for the first time in three years this weekend.
South Shropshire is the most rural area of the county. It is home to ancient monuments and is packed with history, and includes Ludlow, where tourists flock to all year round to visit the castle and many other landmarks.
