The fire service has urged people to avoid the area until further notice to allow the crews to deal with the incident.

Due to the Fire brigade blocking the tracks on Broad Street, trams are also unable to run between between Library at Centenary Square and Edgbaston Village.

Trams are operating between Wolverhampton Station and Library only.
