FIRE crews had a busy day in Rowley Regis as bad weather continued to batter the Black Country over the weekend.

A tree fell onto the roof of the Bell and Bear Inn on Gorsty Road, damaging the back of the pub.

The Technical Rescue Unit from the fire service were called to scene at around 4.30pm yesterday afternoon (February 20), where they worked to remove the tree.

The pub was closed on Sunday as a result of the damage caused to the back of the pub.

Later last night, crews were called to Hailstone Close after high winds blew a loft conversion roof into the street.

It comes as West Midlands Fire Service fire control received 29 calls related to weather on Sunday and attended 12 incidents.
