Just before 7.30am on Wednesday 6 July we were alerted to a fire in a sandwich shop on Birmingham New Road, Coseley.

A fire engine and five firefighters from Tipton fire station responded. They’d extinguished the fire by 8.10am, wearing breathing apparatus and using hose reel jets.

The fire is believed to have started because of an electrical issue on the ground floor of the two-storey, end-terrace building.

It spread to the floorboards of one of two flats above. Fortunately, there was no-one in the flat at the time.
