Plumes of black smoke as fire breaks out next to M5 in West Bromwich

A fire has broken out and plumes of thick black smoke have covered an industrial site in West Bromwich near the M5 motorway.

The blaze is at a site just off of Kelvin Way and was still alight at 12.30pm on Friday afternoon.

It's just yards away from a blaze at another factory which happened earlier this week, after a fire erupted on Tuesday this week at a factory on Bullock Street, where a JCB, around 45 tonnes of rag waste and general waste went up in flames.

The fire service confirmed their attendance.
