A man died after the roof of a town centre building collapsed.

The man, in his 30s, was confirmed dead by paramedics after he was discovered on the ground floor of the building in West Bromwich, West Midlands Police said today.

Detective Chief Inspector Danny Long said: "At the moment we can't tell what time this person died or where he was in the building when the roof collapsed.

"Obviously the roof went through not just the first floor but through to the ground floor.

"We don't know how far he fell. We can't say at this stage."
