How do I keep a new line character in an IFTTT recipe

I am using to watch my Flickr photostream and make a WordPress post. The IFTTT recipe uses:

{{FlickrUrl}}<br> {{Description}}<br> <a href="{{FlickrUrlShort}}">via Flickr</a> 

The <br> after the {{FlickrUrl}} is not being parsed. I end up with ‘br’ on the end of the photo URL and the link doesn’t work.

For example 

is being added to the blog as: 

The br is breaking the URL string

Any help would be appreciated.
