New use for Birmingham New Street Station tunnels

West Midlands Fire Service has been holding a training exercise in the network of tunnels below Birmingham's New Street station. They were once a busy link for the postal service between the station and the sorting office at the Mailbox.

The tunnels haven't been used since the mid-nineties. But the development of the station is about to give them a new lease of life. Callum Watkinson reports.
