Fire crews have been tackling a major fire at a factory in Birmingham.

West Midlands Fire Service said it was called to the Chidlow and Cheshire car accessory plant in Winson Green at about 03:15 GMT.

Station Commander Mark Lawton said as many as 10 crews were involved at the height of the blaze, although firefighters were now damping down.

He added that a local authority team had been called in to help deal with "low level" asbestos contamination.

Springhill remains closed.
