Shropshire flood defences removed

Barriers coming down in Ironbridge Barriers have come down in Ironbridge

Some flood barriers in Shropshire have been taken down as river levels drop.

The barriers at Ironbridge have been removed, while some flood defences in Frankwell, Shrewsbury, were withdrawn.

Others in Shrewsbury were expected to be taken down on Saturday morning, the Environment Agency (EA) said, while Frankwell car park has partially reopened.

One flood warning remains in the county on the River Severn at Quatford, after others were removed earlier.
