Woman's body pulled out of Severn
A body, believed to be that of an elderly woman, has been pulled out of the River Severn in Shropshire.

The woman's body was retrieved by a fire service boat at Jackfield, near Ironbridge, on Sunday.

The body is badly decomposed and is thought to have been in the water for a number of days.

The River Severn has been badly hit by flooding in recent weeks. A post-mortem examination will be carried out on Monday to determine the cause of death.
