A town road will be closed overnight on Wednesday.

Shropshire Council says the closure will take place in Church Street, Oswestry. It said the road would be shut from 7pm to 6am the following day to allow for workers to put in a new water connection.

A diversion via Smithfield Street, English Walls, and Leg Street, will be in place.

Further south, a road will be closed to allow for utilities workers to replace a manhole.

Shropshire Council said the closure of Shaw Lane in Albrighton would last for a day, and will take place on May 19. It said it would allow for teams from Severn Trent Water to replace a defective manhole cover. An alternative route is via High Street and Station Road.

The closure for the work will include the link road leading from the eastbound carriageway of the A5, to its junction with the A458.
