A factory has been gutted in a massive blaze.

The two-storey unit on the Marshalls industrial estate in Wolverhampton caught fire at about midnight, the fire service said.

The fire was brought under control and contained and crews left the scene in Sedgley Street at 12:40 GMT.

The cause of the blaze has yet to be established, and there were no reports of casualties or injuries, West Midlands Fire Service said.

It said the building was examined by a structural engineer and deemed safe.

At its peak, eight crews and 40 firefighters were brought in to fight the flames.

Fire fighters had revisited the site just after 16:00, and were due to review the scene throughout Wednesday evening.
