Crews from Fallings Park and Bloxwich are attending a fire at a chip shop on Wood End Road, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.

We were initially called at 10:43 this morning and crews arrived to a fully developed fire in the chip shop.

The fire, which is now under control, is believed to have originated in a fat fryer. It also spread to ducting.

A residential flat above the chip shop has been searched, with no sign of fire spread.

Crews continue to work to extinguish the fire and will then begin damping down and salvage duties.
