Five men have died after an industrial accident at a recycling depot in Nechells, an area of Britain’s second-biggest city Birmingham, the local West Midlands Police force said on Thursday.

Police said officers were called by the ambulance service to a site called Hawkeswood Metal to reports that a wall had collapsed.

Five men were pronounced dead at the scene and another man was taken to hospital with serious leg injuries, police said.
