Emergency crews scrambled to the eastbound Junction 3 at Albrighton shortly after 5pm on Wednesday.

A Shropshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "At 5.17pm on Wednesday, November 30, SFRS Fire Control received a call reporting that a road traffic collision had taken place in Albrighton. One person assisted out of vehicle by fire service.

"Four fire appliances including the rescue tender were mobilised from Albrighton and Wellington. An operations officer was in attendance."

Crews used cutters, spreaders and small gear, and made the vehicles safe.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called to reports of a four-car RTC on the M54 eastbound, between junctions 3 and 2 at 5.30pm yesterday. One ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Care Car attended the scene. On arrival we discovered four occupants of the vehicles.
