Bullring Indoor Market shuts for day over mice find

An indoor market is to close for a day of deep cleaning after signs of mouse and cockroach activity were found.

The action is being taken at Birmingham's Bullring Indoor Market by environment health and pest control officers.

The market will be closed on Tuesday but is expected to re-open for business on Wednesday, the city council said.

The Bullring Outdoor Market, RAG Market, and Wholesale Market are all unaffected and will be open as normal.

A spokesman for the city council added: "Market traders have been consulted and are fully co-operating with the action."

He said that signs of mice and cockroach activity were identified at the site on Monday and there would now be an intensive deep clean as a "preventative measure".
