Closure of the B5065 between Wem and the A49
Update: 4.20pm, Thursday 9 November
The B5065 between Wem and the A49 is currently closed after an HGV struck Soulton Bridge this afternoon.
The vehicle involved in the incident is to be removed using a crane, which has now arrived on site. This is a major operation and may take several hours.
The road will remain closed until the HGV has been removed, and will then be reopened to traffic under two-way traffic lights.
