More than 60 firefighters have been tackling a severe fire at an industrial unit in Coventry.

A fire started in a car repair centre in Eden Street, Edgewick, on Friday morning.

West Midlands Fire Service said most of the building, which contained acetylene cylinders and about 400 tyres, was involved in the fire.

Up to 350 pupils were moved out of Stanton Bridge Primary School as a precaution. An inquiry has started.

There have been no reports of casualties.

Fire crews are expected to remain on site for the next 24 hours.
