'Hero' Officer Runs Into Burning Building After Cannabis Farm Sparks Fire

A police officer in Birmingham, England, was hailed as a hero after he raced into a burning building in December to ensure people inside evacuated their flats.

PC Spencer Lunn, 26, was on patrol in Birmingham on December 9 when he saw flames rising through the roof of a building on Bristol Road.

Lunn’s bodycam footage shows him running into the building and banging on doors to ensure everyone gets out.

The footage also shows the moment Lunn discovered the cause of the fire – bin bags lining the staircase of a cannabis factory operating from one of the flats.

West Midlands Police said an investigation to identify those behind the cannabis factory was continuing. Credit: West Midlands Police via Storyful
