By Lisa O'Brien | South Shropshire | News | Published:

The same stretch of the A49 was stretched for the second time in 24 hours after a crash today.

Five fire crews, including the rescue tender, were called to the A49 at Marshbrook in south Shropshire where three vehicles were involved in a crash at around 11am.

Nobody was trapped in the vehicles but firefighters dealt with a fuel leak.

Police and West Midlands Ambulance Service were also called to the scene and motorists were warned to avoid the area while a stretch of the road was closed.

The extent of any injuries is not yet known.

Two people were taken to hospital after another crash between a car and a van on the A49 at Marshbrook at about 5.30pm yesterday.
