The passenger of a car that crashed in Shropshire may have broken his leg.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “There were two men in the car which had collided with a wall. The passenger had to be freed with the help of the fire service. He had a suspected broken leg which was treated at the scene. He was then taken by land ambulance to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
