After a tractor crashed through their living room in 2020, a couple in Shropshire said they wanted better road safety.

Gemma Jones's and Darren Hemmings' home is at a sharp bend in Cotwall Lane, High Ercall. They complain that there have been four serious accidents since 2015.

According to Mr Hemming, his van was struck by a livestock-carrying lorry in June.

Telford and Wrekin Council stated that they were in discussions about possible measures.

According to the authority, it was aware of road safety concerns and was in contact with parish and borough councillors. Ideas included "new signage, road markings and resurfacing".

The police would have to agree with it if the speed limit was changed.

The speed limit on the section between Jones's village home and Jones is 60 mph. However, in 2021, another portion of the B5062 was increased to 50 mph due to safety concerns.

Mrs Jones stated that she didn't believe speed changes would make any difference. She suggested speed cameras as a better option, but was told that they weren't possible.

She said, "It makes it angry, very angry."

A motorcyclist was killed in 2015 on the road near Jones's house, and another car crashed through their garden a year later.

They said that in 2019, a car drove through the hedge of a farmer and into a field, causing severe damage to their crops.

It was the tractor hitting the living room that most worried them, Mrs Jones explained, explaining that she had been there with her son one hour prior to the accident.

"The chimney saved the house.

She warned, "[But] someone else is going to be killed."
