Wolverhampton factory fire: Asbestos fears as residents warned of debris risk
Pubic Health England (PHE) issued the advice this afternoon after flames ripped through A.S.H Plastics and Archive Services at the Clearwater Industrial Estate in Ettingshall Road overnight.
The government agency said the risk to health was low but encouraged anyone who has not been evacuated from the local area to keep doors and windows closed and to leave any ash or debris from the blaze alone.
