Local woman Anna Harrington-Ridley told the BBC, “I was stood down there at the end of the road that has been blocked off and you could see the massive plume of smoke, there was fire, explosions, all sorts of things.”

Roads were closed in the area, while Public Health England in the West Midlands region advised nearby residents to stay indoors, and keep doors and windows closed. Credit: Angelika Jacek Pichor via Storyful
