70 firefighters now tackling bowling alley blaze

West Midlands Fire service say they're dealing with a large blaze at a disused bowling alley in Wolverhampton.

The Stryker's bowling alley closed in October and there have since been reports of metal thefts from the site.

The fire service says it's not believed anyone was in the building at the time, but the flames have now broken through the building's roof.

Services on nearby train lines are delayed because of large amounts of smoke in the area.

It's not believed any neighbouring buildings are under threat, but the fire service is expected to be there for some time.
