Emergency services were called to the scene of the RTC on the A49 at Leebotwood at around 9am

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said the crash involved "one Land Rover that had come to rest on its side with no persons trapped".

Firefighters from Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Wellington made the vehicle safe and left the casualty in care of paramedics.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "An ambulance was sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews found a car had been in a collision and ended up on its side.

"The driver, a woman, was already out of the vehicle and was assessed by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment and was given self-care advice and discharged at the scene."

West Mercia Police warned drivers of "long delays" but announced shortly before 10.55am that the road was clear again.

AA Traffic maps showed heavy traffic in both directions in and around the village.
