Businesses have returned to a Shropshire industrial estate following a factory fire.

The blaze broke out at Minshall Construction on Adderley Road Industrial Estate, in Market Drayton shortly before 13:00 BST on Monday.

People were evacuated and a 200m (650ft) exclusion zone was set up as crews tackled the blaze, involving acetylene and oxygen cylinders.

The cordon was lifted earlier and firms were then allowed to return.

Firefighters remained on site until about 08:00 BST to make sure gas cylinders were cooled.
