Shrewsbury bus hits station after handbrake released

Three men have been arrested after a handbrake was released on a parked bus causing it to roll and collide with a bus station in Shropshire.

The vehicle crossed a road in Shrewsbury town centre before hitting the building in Raven Meadows at about 00:45 BST, police said.

Shropshire Council said one of the station's barriers had been damaged and it was assessing the cost of repairs.

Two men aged 19 and another aged 18 remain in police custody.

The trio were arrested on suspicion of aggravated taking of a vehicle without the owner's consent.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: "It appears the vehicle was parked up when boarded by unauthorised persons who released the handbrake.

"It rolled forward across the road. Fortunately, no-one was injured."
