Fire extinguisher let off on bus on Broad Street during rush hour.

Broad Street in the City Centre was partially closed, near to the former Tesco Five Ways store, on Wednesday evening (26/01) following an incident on a bus.

Emergency services were called at around 5:45PM after a fire extinguisher was let off on a bus by a group of young men who had entered the vehicle via the emergency exit.

A number of passengers were treated for effects of fumes from the device, but it is not believed there were any serious injuries.

A spokesperson from West Midlands Police, said: ““Police are investigating after a fire extinguisher was let off on a bus.

It is believed youths opened the door of stationary buses and let off a fire extinguisher inside.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible – anyone with information should call police on 101.”

Please call WMP on 101 if you have ANY information.
