PARAMEDICS were called to a nine-vehicle pile-up on the A5 close to Gobowen on Monday morning.

Commuters faced delays early on Monday when a number of cars collided on the main road.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) confirmed paramedics had been sent to the scene but no further treatment was required.

They said: "We were called to reports of an RTC at the junction of the A5 and B5009 in Gobowen, Oswestry at around 9.10am.

"A paramedic officer was sent to the scene, where, on arrival, they discovered nine vehicles had been involved in a collision.

"There was one patient requiring assessment, a woman, but she did not require further treatment so was given self-care advice and discharged at the scene."

The incident took place around 9am with an eye-witness reporting that two vehicles had collided close to the northbound lay-by of the A5.

This led to more drivers then driving into the back of the vehicles in front of them, causing a small pile-up on the road.

Traffic continued to pass along the road but at around 10.25am, the road was partially blocked to allow it to be cleared.

The road then reopened at around 10.50am.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed it was not required to attend.
