A CRASH between three vehicles has closed the A49 in both directions north of Church Stretton.

Traffic is slow in the area as the road remains closed due to a fuel spillage.

The road is closed between the A5 at the Dobbies Island, Bayston Hill to the B4371 Sandford Avenue at Church Stretton.

Highways England are said the road will be closed for sometime as a spillage needs to be cleared from the road using a hydroblaster.
