The Wrekin shone a brilliant blue in a gesture of thanks to NHS workers for all their work during the coronavirus crisis.

At about 8pm on Thursday, when parts of the nation were clapping and cheering for the NHS and key workers, blue lights on the Wrekin were switched on and could be seen for miles around. They were accompanied by the letters 'NHS' in bright yellow lights.

It was thanks to a number of companies and Telford & Wrekin Council, who organised the display.
