The vehicle went through the front wall of The Crown on High Street in Albrighton at around 9.24pm.

High Street was closed for a time following concern that part of the building could collapse.

No persons were reported to have been injured in the collision.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service worked alongside a structural engineer from Shropshire Council to safely remove the vehicle.

West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and a utility company were also at the scene of the incident.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service left the scene at around 1.15am.
