A wind turbine had to be taken down by Shropshire firefighters and engineers after concerns about its stability during storm weather.

Firefighters from Shrewsbury helped engineers to take the turbine down at Shrewsbury Road in Cressage, near Much Wenlock.

They were called to the scene at about 6.45pm on Sunday.

A spokeswoman from Shropshire Fire and Rescue said: “One wind turbine was reported as unstable from the stormy weather so was lowered using straining wires and man power.”
