But services will be reintroduced after safety checks were carried out.

Network Rail said: "As of 1.41pm all lines at Shrewsbury station were deemed safe to reopen. Train operators will reintroduce services in a controlled manner.

"Please check before travel as this may take a little time. Thank you to passengers for understanding."

Shrewsbury train lines were impacted by severe flooding with many rail lines closed.

Transport for Wales and West Midlands Railway asked people to check before they travel as the high water levels in Shrewsbury affected rail travel.
