Special service after church fire
Fire damage at Holy Trinity Church, Little Dawley, Telford
The fire was started deliberately
A special service has taken place a week after a Shropshire church was badly damaged in an arson attack.

Worshippers arrived at the Holy Trinity Church in Little Dawley in Telford last Sunday to find a fire had destroyed part of the Victorian building's roof.

A joint service was held at Little Dawley's Methodist Church.

Reverend Robert Reedshaw, the Methodist minister for Telford, said it was a time for churchgoers to unite.

"It's devastating to hear about any sort of fire.

"You never know how or when it could be your church, so we were absolutely devastated."
