People have been allowed back in their homes after a medieval town wall collapsed in Shropshire.

Local residents were forced to leave their homes when the 800-year-old structure fell down in February. Nobody was injured.

Shropshire Council said its engineers were still assessing the 30ft stretch of wall and assessing what interim maintenance work could be done.

Repair work could cost £1million.

Experts say last years wet weather and frost were to blame.
