BBC says Church Stretton library campaigners have won

A year ago I blogged about Shropshire Council's plans to move Church Stretton Library to a less central location.

After that local residents sought judicial review of the council's decision.

Today, at 12:40 on its Shropshire Live page, BBC News reported that:
Campaigners fighting plans to move Church Stretton's library say they have won their legal battle against Shropshire Council. 
They say the authority conceded the case moments before it was due to be heard by a court in Birmingham.
The report in the Shropshire Star is more guarded, and I suspect that is wise, but at least I have a chance to use my photo of the library again.
