Fire exercise at Birmingham nightclub

About 60 firefighters have been putting their search and rescue skills to the test in a training exercise at a Birmingham nightclub.

The scenario at Gatecrasher's three-storey site on Thursday evening involved at least 40 nightclub staff.

The fire service said it would be "a great opportunity" to put firefighting techniques to the test at a venue that can accommodate about 2,000 revellers.

Up to 12 fire engines were at the site.
