Fire crews were called to an address in Harley Way shortly before 7pm on Monday but when they arrived the flames had been put out.

Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service sent two crews from the town and Much Wenlock along with an operations officer to the scene.

In another incident a crew from Cleobury Mortimer Fire Station were called to a report of a tree fire, in Beaveney Wood, at 5.45pm only to find that it was a false alarm.

The service said, "the fire was a controlled burn with the occupier in attendance. No action required by fire service personnel."

The fire fighters left the area shortly after 6pm.
