Firefighters in Prees have been called out after large sheets of plywood were left in a "precarious position" in the village on Sunday morning as the region is battered by Storm Ciara.

The non-urgent callout happened shortly before 10.30am in Church Street after the six sheets were found to be over a public footway.

They have been moved to a safe place.

Meanwhile, police in north Shropshire have urged residents to only travel if necessary after a tree came down in Coton by the Bull and Dog pub.

They took to Twitter to say: "Take your time passing while we await highways to remove. Only travel if necessary today."

The Met Office has issued an amber weather warning for Shropshire throughout Sunday as wind speeds are expected to exceed 60mph before lunchtime.

An amber warning means flying debris could lead to injuries or danger to life, damage to buildings, powercuts, and road closures.

They have also issued a yellow warning for rain.
