    Heather Kidd is demanding urgent action over safety measures at the scene of a fatal accident after a year of inaction by Shropshire Council.

    Heather said: "At the Folly Junction on the B4386, visibility is very poor when you are coming from the Chirbury direction and there have been numerous accidents here over the years. A person died here in July 2019 and representatives from the Parish Council and I met Officers from Shropshire Council at the Junction on 1st August 2019. We agreed on a number of measures to improve safety here including new white lining and signage which is re-sited and is also NOT misleading as it is now.

    Bishop's Castle Foodbank has benefited from devastating flooding which has very sadly left Bucknell Village Stores with no alternative but to close its doors for the last time. Proprietors Sam and Lee Traylor not only had flood damage to deal with and clean up but they also had the problem of what to do with the remaining stock in the shop which closed last week.
