About 100 firefighters tackled a fire at industrial units in Birmingham overnight.

A spokesman described the fire, which is believed to have badly damaged four single-storey units, as "severe".

Crews are currently damping down the fire and are looking into how it started. Police are also in attendance.

The blaze led to a number of road closures.

The four units, one of which contained cars, were owned by three separate companies.
