A warning has been issued to people who smoke e-cigarettes smokers after the battery in one overheated and exploded in a Birmingham office.
West Midlands Fire Service said the device had been left to charge via a computer USB port, and overheated. It exploded and sprayed hot battery fluid.
The man was away from his desk at the time so managed to escape injury - though his keyboard and desk was damaged.
