A major clean-up operation is underway following a fire at a recycling plant in Smethwick which could have been caused by a Chinese lantern.
Around 200 firefighters fought the flames which destroyed more than 50,000 tonnes of recycling material.
Yesterday West Midlands Fire Service called for an "urgent review" of the legislation regarding the use of Chinese lanterns.
West Midlands Fire Service said: "We are also urging community leaders and members of the public to discourage the use of the lanterns, on the basis that they constitute a fire risk when released."
