Officers from Bishop's Castle were out attending to the abandoned caravan on the A490 between Chirbury and Churchstoke on Wednesday morning.

A spokesperson from the Safer Nieghbourhood Team said dealing with the situation was diverting them from other serious matters and called it "totally reckless".

At about 8.30am, South Shropshire SNT's tweeted: "Bishop's Castle SNT are out at an abandoned caravan which has been left in the live carriageway of an A road.

"This is totally reckless and puts members of the public at risk! This act also diverts us from more serious matters."
