Princess Anne has visited a specialist school in Shropshire.

The Princess Royal went to Higford School, near Shifnal, which is run by the Options Group and specialises in helping children with autism.

After arriving by helicopter, the princess spoke to staff and pupils and was given a tour of the premises, which includes a sensory room.

She also visited the Aga offices in Coalbrookdale. The princess was in Birmingham on Thursday.

She officially opened the Perry Tree Centre in Erdington, a city council-run care centre providing support and services for people with dementia.
