It's hasn't taken a wrong turn due to a Sat Nav error!

This 1950's Land Rover known as Plimsoll has been specially converted to run on railway lines.

And today it drove up and down the full length of the 16-mile Severn Valley Railway from Bridgnorth in Shropshire to Kidderminster in Worcestershire.

It was part of a special event at the heritage line.

The Land Rover can also run on roads with normal tyres and is pictured about to enter the tunnel between Bewdley and Kidderminster.

London Mayor denies 'Knife Angel' for Trafalgar Square

A mother whose son was stabbed to death, has criticised a decision not to display a Midlands-made monument to knife crime victims in London.

The sculpture was created at the British Ironwork Centre in Shropshire. It's made with a hundred thousand blades that were handed in to police. Its creators always hoped it could be displayed on the empty fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, but those in charge said no. Chris Halpin reports.
