Halfway House pair die as motorcycle and car collide

Two people have died in a road crash in Shropshire.

The man and woman, who were on a motorcycle, were involved in a collision with a car on Welshpool Road, at Halfway House, shortly before 12:20 BST, the ambulance service said.

They were confirmed dead at the scene, near the Windmill Inn.

Three people in the car received minor injuries and one of them was taken to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital as a precaution.

West Mercia Police appealed for witnesses to come forward and said an inquest was expected to open later in the week.
