Debate to decide how 'Shrewsbury' should be pronounced?

A debate is taking place to settle the long-running question of how to pronounce "Shrewsbury", Shropshire's county town.

For years people have argued over whether it's "Shroosbury", "Shrowsbury" or even "Shoosbury".

Historians will present arguments for each side at the event hosted by University Centre, at Rowley's House in Barker Street in Shrewsbury.

The public will be asked to vote after the debate at 19:00 BST on the correct pronunciation.
