Road Safety Officer James Sutherland said: “We have seen some extremely tragic collisions in recent weeks both in Shropshire and our neighbouring counties and our deepest sympathies go out to everyone involved in these incidents.

“Nationally the majority of serious crashes involve people; using a mobile phone while driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding, not wearing a seatbelt or not driving with due care and attention.

“Please keep this in mind when driving and look at our website for more road safety advice.”
