Nazi documents suggest Adolf Hitler planned to make his personal headquarters in Shropshire if he had successfully invaded Britain during World War II.

Historians think he considered Shropshire as the ideal base because it was located in the centre of the country with excellent rail and communication links.

The historical maps illustrate how the Nazis had earmarked Bridgnorth as a town they wanted to move into as a potential base.

Presenter Richie Woodall looks at how Shropshire could have become Hitler's base if he had won the war.
