At least one person is understood to be seriously injured after a wall collapsed in Birmingham.

A second person was taken to hospital with minor injuries and police said the Health and Safety Executive have been informed.

Sky News correspondent Becky Johnson said at the scene that sniffer dogs had been sent in to search the rubble.

“There are reports that it was an internal wall and that they had been working on the building,” she said.

She described the street as a row of terraced three-storey buildings, which appear to be mostly offices.
