    A man has died after being hit by a car near Oswestry, Shropshire.

    The crash happened just before 22:45 on Saturday 13 October, on the A5 in Gobowen, close to the junction with the B5009, said West Mercia Police.

    The 54-year-old was taken to hospital, where he died.

    West Mercia Police said dealers from Merseyside, Wolverhampton and Birmingham were targeting the town - although, it said, Shrewsbury accounts for only a "fraction of the national picture".

    BBC Weather Watchers

    There's plenty of heavy rain about this morning and we love this photo of a sheep taking shelter from the elements in Worcester.

    Thanks to BBC Weather Watcher Mitchc1971 for sending it in.


    Peter Steggles snapped this equally rainy-looking snap in Longnor.

  6. Woman pinned by falling branch taken to hospital

    A woman needed hospital treatment after part of a tree fell on to a footpath in Market Drayton town centre on Saturday, pinning her underneath.


    It happened on the footpath close to the library at about 11:30.

    Lydia Baralt, in the area at the time, said she heard a "loud crack" before part of the tree came down.

    "We soon realised that someone was underneath it," she said, "and people immediately dialled 999".

  7. Black Mamba call-outs 'draining resources'

    Calls to treat patients who've taken the drug Black Mamba are putting emergency services under extreme pressure, says West Midlands Ambulance Service.

    On average, figures show its paramedics are called out between 80 and 100 times a week to cases involving the drug.

    Black Mamba

    Black Mamba is a psychoactive substance that looks like cannabis but is cheaper and more potent. It mimics the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis.

    Paramedic Neil Howkins said crews could really only take people under the influence of the drug to hospital where "hopefully they'll recover".

    "It is a drain on our resource because primarily we're not really there for that."

  8. Flood warning in place

    A flood warning is still in force on the Wye in Herefordshire this morning.

    The river was expected to peak at around five metres above its normal level in Hereford on Sunday - with flooding affecting roads around Holme Lacy as well as low lying farm land in the Ross area.

    There are also flood alerts in place on the River Lugg south of Leominister and the River Severn in Shropshire.
