Fire damages Victorian building
A listed building in Birmingham has been badly damaged in a fire.

The blaze, blamed on an electrical fault, started in the basement of the Barton Arms, High Street, Aston, and spread to all three floors.

The A34 was temporarily closed following the fire which broke out in the early hours of Friday morning. Crews remain at the scene damping down.

At its height, more than 30 firefighters tackled the blaze at the Victorian grade-II building.
