Two lorries broke down on the A5 near Oswestry today, causing long tailbacks.

The busy stretch of road between the Mile End roundabout and Shottaton crossroads was partially blocked in both directions.

The HGVs broke down on either side of the road about 500 metres apart.

Police were on scene directing traffic and drivers were facing delays of around 20 minutes.
