  6. Telford head teacher apologises for sending badly worded letter to parents

    Andy Giddings

    BBC Shropshire

    The head teacher at Holmer Lake Primary School in Telford has apologised for sending parents a letter encouraging them to sign up for after-schools clubs in a bid to prevent their children being "groomed" or becoming involved in "extremism".

    It said the club would encourage a sense of belonging, which would in turn help combat child sexual exploitation, radicalisation and other forms of crime.

  9. Shropshire centre dispelling the myths around Electro-Convulsive Therapy

    Nick Southall

    Journalist, BBC Shropshire

    When you hear electric shock therapy it does conjure up images of the scene from the film One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. But that couldn't be further from the truth.

    Twenty five people have been treated using Electro-Convulsive Therapy this year, 15 of which were women. In fact over the last few years the number of women having the treatment has been considerably higher than men.

    I spoke to Louise McCormack from the Redwoods Centre in Shrewsbury.

    The human rights group Liberty is demanding a public inquiry into claims of physical and sexual abuse at the Deepcut army barracks in Surrey.

    It says a full investigation should be carried out into the culture at the base, following the inquest into the death of Cheryl James, whose parents live in Llanymynech.

    The cause of a fire at Telford's Southwater car park at the weekend is still unknown. 

    Fire chiefs say an investigation is under way. 

    Thick black smoke could be seen pouring from the multi-storey car park at about 12:30 on Saturday. Three cars were alight. 

    Telford and Wrekin Council says the car park is open but at reduced capacity - 150 spaces available out of about 600 - as repair work is still ongoing.
