Birmingham's Grand Central 'creating sun hotspots'

Sunrays reflecting off Birmingham's Grand Central shopping centre are being blamed for hotspots.

Some commuters and shoppers at New Street station say they are caused by the building's mirrored design.

Surrounding businesses say they have seen a "significant difference" in how hot it is since the revamped station was erected.

We checked the temperature at one of the so-call hotspots on Navigation Street on an overcast, warm day. The temperature varied from 28 degrees to 33 degrees Celsius.

Owners, Network Rail, said it had not received any complaints.
