Birmingham gears up for second summer tunnel closures

Preparations are under way for a second series of closures for the A38 tunnels in Birmingham city centre.

The tunnels will be closed again in July while "outdated" ventilation systems and electrics are replaced.

Birmingham City Council said disruption caused by last year's closures had not been as bad as predicted, but businesses around the tunnels said profits were affected.

BBC Midlands Today's Peter Plisner spoke to Eddie Fellows, from contractor Amey; the council's Kevin Hicks and petrol station owner Pritash Patney.
