Firefighters rescued two people from a disused quarry in Much Wenlock on Monday afternoon.
Emergency services were called to the incident at Shadwell Quarry known as the ‘Blue Lagoon’ in Much Wenlock at around 4.23pm.
Two people were rescued from a steep bank at the quarry before being handed to the care of the ambulance service.
Three fire appliances including the Incident Command Unit were mobilised from Shrewsbury, Telford Central and Tweedale with an operations officer.
West Mercia Police, The National Police Air Service and West Midlands Ambulance Service also attended.
More than sixty people were reported to have gathered at the location with local residents earlier contacting West Mercia Police after cars were left parked along the roadside.
I understand that this has been reported to 101 by a several residents. It’s unacceptable in normal circumstances but it is recklessly inconsiderate in this #coronavirus crisis. @Shropcop22 @ShropshireDogs @WestMerciaOCC @WestMerciaSAR @WestMerciaPCC @SFRS_Wenlock https://t.co/1RhWPkKl2v— David Turner (@Turner4Wenlock) May 25, 2020
