The rescue happened at about 6pm at the restrooms on Victoria Road in Wellington on Friday.

Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service classified the incident as urgent and sent one fire appliance and crews from Wellington Fire Station.

Firefighters used small gear to open the door and free the women within about 20 minutes.

This happened shortly after firefighters tackled a blaze which broke out in the back of a commercial van at the Ketley Dingle Interchange.

A fire engine was sent from Wellington Fire Station at about 4.30pm and crews used a hose reel jet to extinguish the blaze, which was described as a "small fire in rear of commercial van".

Firefighters had left the scene by about 5.10pm.

At about 7pm, crews were again called from Wellington to a two-car crash in Telford.

The collision happened on the B5061 at Cluddley, near the Wrekin.

Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service sent one appliance and crews worked to make the area safe.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was also at the scene and treated two people for their injuries, the extent of which are not yet known.

The fire service reported: "Road traffic collision involving two cars. Two persons treated by ambulance service. Fire service made vehicles safe."
