THE B5493 Ashby Road has been closed this evening (Wednesday 3rd January) due to a large fire.
The road which leads North East out of Tamworth Town Centre has been closed in both directions and a number of emergency services are in attendance.
The incident was reported to us by a reader at around 8pm who reported the road being closed and a number of ‘blue lights’ in attendance.
A fruther reader has since contacted us to state that there was a large fire a the location at around 645pm.
It is beleived that the closure is in place to allow firefighters to work at a large house fire on the road.
Our thougths are with all involved.
