Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to a property on Park Road in Donnington at 10pm on Friday.

Two fire engines rushed to the scene from Telford Central and Wellington stations, and crews found a bonfire had spread to a shed, hedge and large conifer tree.

The firefighters spent just under an hour tackling the blaze.

The stop message, which suggests the fire is under control, was received at 10.55pm.
