Icy weather halts driving tests in Shropshire

Nearly all driving tests in Shropshire were cancelled this week due to the freezing weather, officials say.

Only four of the 155 scheduled tests at Shrewsbury, Telford, Whitchurch and Ludlow driving centres went ahead, the Driving Standards Agency said.

Conditions on the roads in the county were so poor that only Oswestry managed to carry out some tests on Monday and Tuesday, the agency added.

The freezing weather has closed airports and schools across England.

Some places have experienced slightly warmer temperatures on Friday, but the Met Office still has warnings in place for icy roads in many areas.
