Ashby Road closed due to fire

January 3, 2018

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.
